My 16.2 ISH mare and i are having big issues concerning seperation issues...
Ive had her for 2 months now, and since she has been at the yard she has been in with another mare.. The other horse a few weeks back cut her shoulder and had to be put in a seperate field whilst it was healing to stop them from running about and causing her more injury... My mare was not bothered about that at all.
They are now back in the field together, and this is where the problem starts.. When i take my mare out for hacks or shows, she isnt bothered in the slightest, but the other day, her field buddy went out of the yard and mine went mental... She was half tacked up, and i had to quickly remove the saddle and unclip her where the proceeded to bolt around the menage and buck. She could even see the horse in the field next to her. This has happened a few times now and she is very close to hurting herself..
Another problem is that we have had 2 new horses arrive at the yard, and put into the field next to them. Breeze went on to threaten and almost protect the other mare, and was charging and bolting towards the new horse in the next field. She also arches her neck in a stallion like manner and isnt very friendly..
Im very worried that if this continues she will either hurt herself or another horse.
Oh, and i have also put her on Oestress to see if this calms her down, but this is only day 2 on it so i wont know for a while yet.
I hope someone can help and give me some sort of advice, otherwise i will have to move yards and make sure she isnt put in with another horse..
