Question new horse walks away from feed

My new mare doesn't stay at her feed bowl during feed time; keeps walking away allowing older mare to finish hers up. Have 2 horses & would like to continue to feed in field w/o tying up or stalling.

Your other mare is most likely subtlety giving your new mare the 'evil eye' and 'gently' nudging her off her feed.......have you fed them at separate ends of the yard/pen? Or at quite a distance from eacother in the pasture......I used to feed the horses far away from one another with them facing away from each other......

Watch them closely and see who 'makes a move' first.....it's quite an interesting thing to watch

I was feeding on opposite sides of barn. She keeps walking over to check on older mare. Of course when older mare, Bella is finished, she goes to eat new mare's. Suppose new mare is becoming overly attached to Bella. Thanks
