Hi, The fence has been re done now and the stable doors re inforced. The mare and foal have their own field, Side by side with the others. I let a couple of the younger ones and the oldies in with the mare and foal for maby an hour a day apart from that they are on their own.
Hopefully with the change of fence she cannot break free. She is completley destructive but the fences are strong.
Cmarie- that was the pain point of the post. She doesnt call the colt he can be ontop of one of the others the other end of the field and she doesnt shout for him.
This is what I found weird. But after reading posts I guess she just isnt attentive? Or doesnt feel a threat from the other horses? They don't even lift a leg at him they just pretty much shake him off.
The mare is the only one with milk! The rest are youngsters or geldings! But he still has a go anyways.
Unfortunatley I cannot pony him, at the moment we are but when our seasons starts he will have to stay on the field with my retired horse. The mare is not a lead horse and he cannot run free as he doesn't stay close. At the moment she goes to the beach for a gentle 15 minute walk x2 a week, and I either let him free or pony him, but when the toursits arrive I cannot do this.
