she's being a real cow

hay all

funny story

my horse navara is a bit of a cow... MOOO!!
some of you might know that i moved her recently to another sable yard..!!

well what hapend is this we put her in a field with some geldings... DISASTER then we put her in a field with some mare's with whom should stood at the other stables BIGGER DISASTER...

is something wrong or is she just like her mommy not really a people{horsie} person?? or is it maybe just her personality?

What exactly is she doing? Squealing, kicking, etc? Usually when strange horses are put in together they go through an adjustment period. As long as they have plenty of room to get out of the way and away from each other, they adjust. I have known some horses that are rather asocial though-an appy mare we had would suddenly decide the horses across the pasture were too close and start backing toward them, kicking out with her hindlegs every couple steps, the witch!! Sigh..... Maybe your girl just needs time.

I second the "she needs a little more time". Mares really tend to rule geldings (not always, of course) so she might have settled quicker with them. Mares seem to fight longer over pecking order, but rarely do they just never figure one out. It's normally more bluff than anything anyways.. Moving her from herd to herd may be confusing her as well, she's been in constant "new kid" mode so having to fight more. Just let her have a little extra time.

As long as she isn't hurting herself or anyone else I would give it a little more time...but...

some horses don't like other horses My gelding Aggie hates being in with other horses...he prefers to at least have a fence line between him and anybody else and doesn't mind being outright alone.
