Mls - I wish many owners would figure that out. I work at my barn so I'm involved with alot of this stuff and you have to expect some cuts, bites, scrapes. But sometimes there are those horses who just cannot be with a more agressive herd.
My horse gets along with every horse but not every horse will get along with her. We have to be careful where she goes. If horses chase her off food she will not stand up for her self and get food and she loses weight very quickly in that situation.
By the way, I hope your boarder isn't headed our way we have new ones coming in.
