Lalique came to us because she was an antisocial little horse. When she first arrived, she did not want anything to do with anyone. She did not want to be touched.
She has came along way since then. She now doesn't mind being petted though sometimes she gets into a mood and doesn't want any touches for the evening. Her latest little game is; she will go up to one of the other horses for no reason at all and pull out some of their hair. If she continues to do this, we will have to devise a plan to break her of the hair pulling before it becomes a habit.
Yesterday, we went to capture Lalique for the first time since she has been here to give her a west nile virus vaccine and she saw the lead rope and decided she didn't want anything to do with it. She ran all over the yard. We finally set up a catch pen in order to catch her. When we went to give her west nile vaccination, she decided she didn't want any part of that either. Veneta ended up asking for help to get her vaccinated.
She is now vaccinated!
It is very apparent that Lalique will need to be worked with to get her to understand halters and leadropes are not necessarily a bad thing.
