The mare that foaled the filly I posted about is being very protective.
The first day I could approach her and did in fact touch the filly but the mare get between me and the foal.
The second day she would only allow me within 10 feet.
Today she is even worse keeping her distance.
She is in a 25 acre pasture with 4 other horses and she will not allow them to approach either. They all have bite marks.
I need to get the filly used to humans and have the vet out Monday to give her her first shots.
I want to work with her for about a week to start halter breaking her and to allow me to catch her.
Any suggestions? Has anyone experienced this before?
This mare has been abused and took me weeks to be able to touch her and months before I could just walk up and pet her.
Jesus and Miquel cannot catch her and she will not allow them anywhere near her before she had the colt.
When they went out to look at the filly the mare trotted to the other end of the pasture. Shalom
