Moei, I think you get too wound up into "stuff" around you. First he say he has a great personality but he's a bully in the pen to your mom's horse. Then he chases the other horses around during feeding but yet you say he is separated. I would almost be happy he is out of the pen with the other horse. And personally, I don't like herd bullies much. Just not my favorite trait in a horse's personality.

Honestly, I think you should just worry about your own horse and not get so caught up in things around you - ie who's talked to who and what's been said. If it's so bad, the BO could ask her to leave - with the horse. Maybe it does make him faster? Could that be what's really bothering you??

Let her be with her horse.

I would really appreciate if everyone stopped bringing past threads into this conversation and telling me to focus on my own horse, and I am not freaking out over this I just thought it was wrong and that is all I am saying.

I love my horse -Cisco!!
All horses deserve at least once in their life to be loved by a little girl....

See that's the problem with past behaviors. Good or bad, they follow us everywhere. It's called reputation.

I don't think you are freaking out but I do think you might be making more out of this than necessary. I'm still not sure what's "wrong" with it. Because the horse is not nice any more to you? Love on your own horse. She's cute.

He is very sweet looking.

People always think my Bailey is a "he". I finally made a cool down blanket with pink and white flowers so people would know she was girl. They still asked how is "he" doing.

Thanks, that must be annoying! Not many people call him a her but they somehow manage to pronounce his name really wrong! They say Citgo, Crisco, Disco, Frisco and a bunch of other weird things!*

Hmmm... I've been feeding multiple horses in the same pasture/paddock for several years. Now I find out I'm doing it wrong? Each get their own bowl and finish about the same time. I've been feeding 9 horses, 3 of others and 6 of ours, in the same area with out problems. I guess I should pull one out at a time just to be safe.

I think you took that the wrong way, she's isn't saying your way of doing it is wrong. I personally agree with her, it all has to do with the individual horses. Mine don't eat at the same speed and they get different supplements and feed. I feed all at once..Nikki eats as slow as christmas and she's the head horse so the others can't steal her feed, but I stand there to make sure Hickory doesn't go run Lark off of her feed, that affects both horses which can cause some serious damage. Hickory could get too much feed, too much supplement and Lark won't get all of her feed and the supplement.. It's personal preference..it's not pulling one out at a time to feed. It's just knowing that each horse is getting their correct feed and supplement.. I would be mad if I knew I was boarding my horse and the BO responsible for making sure my horse's needs were met and I found out that my horse wasn't getting it's correct amount of feed because the BO didn't want to take the time to do it the way it should be so that my horse gets all of it's food.. If I'm paying someone to make sure my horse's needs are met, they darn sure better be feeding my horse right.

We feed them all together and the only horse that sometimes gets run off his food is my friends horse because he gets sooooook much freakin alfalfa it's not even funny! He doesn't even finish it sometimes before he just leaves it to eat his hay!
