ok,so i figured out lucy's reason for not wanting to go in the trailer. All the times we've tried,the door has been facing the pasture and her pasture mates(if that makes sense). I was thinking of turning the trailer around and putting it halfway in the pasture so the only way to get to the pasture and her "boyfriend" would be to go in the trailer.

Ok now this leads to another problem. We have a side door on our trailer. our so called farrier told us never to open it but i was going to do that to get her in the pasture? also i dont understand that,as if we were on the road and had 3 horses int he trailer,how would i check on them without opening the big trailer door? Is it ok for me to open the side door? i do have a stall guard there and i wont do it all the time.

Also i guess i need an answer to this too.
Our Farrier. Sonny has soft feet,and he needs shoes/boots to be ridden. Now our vet told us to do this otherwise he'd get hoof abscess's which he already had 2 this summer. our farrier never told us he had soft feet. he told us he was getting abcess's from how his feet were cut,and that was why he was limping most of the time.I dont trust him. He also told us to hit our horses when they spook and pull back...with a stick. I was thinking about getting another farrier,i just dont trust him or his judgement. idk how to tell my parents,im afraid of getting yelled at,or told no. but should i ask for another farrier? i just dont trust him...

You want to lead your horse through the side door to get it into the pasture?

Okay, so first of all, no horse deserves to be hit with a stick. A crop perhaps when they're being naughty, but I plan to never use a crop. It just doesn't seem right. A horse shouldn't be hit when they pull back or spook… they're just scared. Maybe don't listen to your farrier, or talk to your parents calmly about the matter. Tell them how you feel. I really don't know about the trailer, but I hope this helps.

Only those who risk going too far, can possibly find, how far they can go.

yup.

Never try to walk a horse through a side door...they're specifically made so that horses can't get through them and I know more than one horse that's had to be put down because it tried to climb out the side door and got itself stuck.

Aren't you the one who just posted about a horse who wouldn't move forward? Might want to reconsider crops.

I have to use a crop on my mare when she is in heat. When she isn't in heat, she hates the crop but it's a godsend for her mareish days

Though she be but little, she is fierce

Lol I see what you mean, but I just feel scared to use a crop. I just never want to do it. Do you understand that?

Yeah I used to be like that too. You just have to remind yourself that it really doesn't hurt the horse it mainly just makes a sound. It's like telling the horse "hey I'm still here so you need to listen up"
