So....what do I do? Keep applying Blue Kote and Swat? Throw up my hands in disgust? I've already incited a barn-wide turnout scheduling change. Am I supposed to ask for another one to move one horse out of the field? And who moves? Bobby or Bennie? Bobby just stands there and takes it. He doesn't bite back, he doesn't kick out, he won't even pin his ears back. He has no sense of self-preservation. I guess I can ask BO's opinion on it tomorrow. I hate feeling like such a pain in the ass all the time.
Once, long ago, I learned all about conditioning event horses and how to carry that over into conditioning racehorses. For some reason, it seemed like a good thing to go to school for.
