Of course it depends how it lived before. If it lived in a herd I'd ask what position in pecking order it had. Lowest means submissive. Usually. If it lived alone its probably more than happy to have a friend.
What I found the easiest for bringing two strangers together is doing it on neutral territory. Eliminates eventual strong feelings about territory.
Hope this helps
The problem is, it is difficult to find "below
the lowest of the low" - anything - which is what I really need. I found one
such horse in the course of a year
and it had separation issues. My mare was orphaned, she does not "get" herd language, culture, dynamics..nada.
So, her future playmate has to be super "understanding" and the extreme opposite of dominant. I have always wanted a haflinger, so "light bulb".
