So the dream had always been to be able to go trail riding with my Mustang, Romeo, with my GSD Phoenix with us. Well....
When Phoenix was little, he liked to antagonize horses. I never let him do it, but he was a sneaky little bugger, and when my back was turned, he'd be right back in the pasture, messing around with their tails. My mom's horse never cared, but then we got my horse. Who didn't like that. One time Phoenix was doing it (again, While I was busy undoing a bale of hay) and I heard him yelp. Romeo had had enough and had bit him, picked him up with his teeth, and flung him a good five feet. Romeo didn't make after him, he just wanted him to QUIT!
However, Phoenix now holds a grudge against my horse, and vice versa. He charges the fence most every morning. Most of the time he will stop when I tell him to, unless he gets too far ahead. Romeo doesn't help matters, as he sometimes charges the fence as well, and always shakes his head and gets "the angry face" on.
I still really really want to be able to ride with my boy with me, but I don't knw if I'll be able to. I think it would be easier if we were away from home, but I don't have a trailer, so its not an option. My biggest fear is that Phoenix will take a cheap shot through the fence (which is electric wire) and bite Romeo, who would then kick my dog. So, Does anyone have any ideas?
