    I think it just shows up more on white horses. I have noticed that if you put a white horse in with a bunch of colored horses they will pick on the white horse much more. In a pasture situation the white horse will be more likely to be pushed away from the other horses.

    It's nature! Animals want to be with thier own kind. If you're in a foriegn country and meet another American you want to be friendly with them even if you would not normally have much in common. If you put two ponies in a field with big horses the ponies will stick together.

    The Arabian in my avatar hated pretty much every horse on the planet, but would tolerate his own breed better than any other. Snotty little bugger!

    I actually saw a case of this! When I was horse hunting I went to look at some horses that a lady had. She had a herd of chestnut quarter horses, but over the heads of all of them I saw some white thing. I went to investigate and it was a little gray arab gelding. He was the lowest in the herd and he was pretty skinny while everyone else was fat. :( I fell in love with him, and if he didn't have really bad arthritis and the owners not wanting anything less than $1000 for a 20+ year old arthritic horse I would have taken him. Luckily I heard that a nice family bought him to use as a companion horse so I don't feel too bad. But still, the other horses refused to let him eat untill they were all done. It was sad. This was him-


    PS: I LOVE Bakkir, he's a doll!

    Some people are morons.

    If you know you have a horse who isn't getting enough to eat because the others push him away, separate him at mealtime and feed him alone!

    Why is this so frickin' hard for some folks to get through their thick skulls? Gah!!!

    haha I know someone like that! He's an anglo arab but I bought him from an arab breeder. The arabs were fine for him but apparently next-door's cobs are not good enough for him!
