Tuck's thoughts on his lesson...
So this morning my mom was brushing me...I was tied up to a fence, and the other horses in my paddock were watching me get groomed. But then this one little filly decided she wanted to try and go under my neck; I was all right with that at first, but then I heard my mom saying, "No, get back, girl." and that little filly suddenly banged her head into my jaw pretty hard - owch! - and then I felt scared that I was trapped, and so plunged backward against my lead to escape....all I felt was a crushing strength behind my ears, pulling forward! I did not want to go forward, I wanted back, but this pressure kept building up, pulling me forward! That's when my mom stepped in front of me, she put a hand on my strained halter and said, "Come Tuck, step up boy, trust me, don't fight it." I wasn't sure going forward would help, but I took one step forward to obey. That certainly eased the pressure some. She kept kissing and asking me to come to her - I thought about it a bit, and then decided that if she wanted me to trust her I was going to. As I stepped toward my mom the pressure vanished from behind my ears and she stroked my face and told me good boy. So I guess that answer is, if you're scared, go to your mom. They know how to get rid of the pressure. All you horses out there got that?
P.S. She gave me an apple for being so good! :D
