PostSubject: Not fitting in with herd   Thu May 28, 2009 2:21 pm

Well my girls have been at their summer home for two weeks now and my mare is still a outsider and being chased!She is with one gelding and three other mares,it's mostly one mare that chases her the rest ignore her.How long does it take for everybody to settle in? I feel bad for her she has bites on her bum and back and is always standing in a corner watching the others.All she wants is to come inside to her stall,she seems exhausted.Pony is making out better but when they chase my mare she takes off after her (yelling don't leave me behind I'm sure)I don't think it would be possible to separate them.Guess I will just hang in there it's hard to see your baby bullied :sad-smiley-044 !

It can take anywhere from six months to a year for the big 'fights' to finish, but horses are always going to challenge for a different spot in the herd, or display their dominance. Just give it more time, it will get better, as long as the mare that is being picked on has lots of room to escape she should be fine. They will figure out their order soon enough.

Sometimes, I think it is harder on us than the horses. Usually, they will work
it out, although I have seen exceptions to that rule.
