Lucy has been quite the terror lately coming in from her paddock. She gets so panicky toward the end of the day, as if she's worried no one is going to come and get her. When I make my way down to her paddock, she starts running around madly, spinning on her hind end to change direction, and in general acting like a total nutter. She stands quietly for me to attach the leadline (which lately has included a chain over her nose) and then proceeds to try and drag me all the way back to the barn.
She doesn't like being slowed down and she has reared a few times, but her go-to maneuver is to try and muscle me out of the way with her shoulder. If she gets really annoyed, she spins around and stares at me.
Any thoughts on how to handle this? I have been doing some ground work with her to get her attention on me, so that her brain has thoughts other than DINNERDINNERDINNER! but I don't think she retains that very well, especially if it's someone else bringing her in.
