    a few collocations of "tetchy"

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether there is in the following sentences a proper usage of different collocations of “tetchy”?
    The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) doesn't meet often, but it's picked a tetchy time to do so.

    tetchy = irritably or peevishly sensitive ; touchy

    tetchy time = delicate/ ticklish/ difficult time

    I was a little tetchy under your bantering.

    This is a tetchy subject indeed.

    a tetchy subject = a knotty/ burning question = a ticklish point

    A suggestion for those of you with tetchy horses - try cold hosing the leg for 10 - 15 minutes prior to treating it.

    tetchy horse = self-willed / wilful horse

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
