Our New 5 Month old Stallion QH and some questions.

We have him in a separate pature than our other horses but they are able to touch noses and what not. Well my two year old who has never shown any type of aggression keeps charging the fence at him, today he seems better but I don't understand why he would do this to a foal?!?!

Should we wait until he gets bigger to put him with another horse? We have a 26 year old horse who I think would be a good babysitter but I'm just worried that he might get hurt. If they play because the 26 year old if still frisky at times.
And just so you know he will be gelded. :)

Ok so here are some pictures of Sniper.

He is adorable! :) And he seems pretty calm with the kids. Can't answer any of your questions, though, sorry!

I think he's adorable =), no idea about the charging/aggression though. Does he do anything that might set it off?

I would try the senior horse with him.They do learn fast the herd dynamics & I find the older horses generally take foals under their "wing" & watch out for them. I do find the "teenage" horses can be a bit rough with a baby so not surprised really about your 2 yr old acting like the tough guy with him.Have him develop a good relationship with one of the senior horses in the herd & integrating him later will be easier.Mares Are I find are better around the foals than the geldings.

I have an Orphan foal I introduced to my herd. She was able to spend some one on one time with most of the members of the herd at some point & was always able to visit over the fence with them. My boss mare had been her babysitter,stayed with her since she was only a couple weeks old.Weaned her off her milk replacer ,figured it was time to experience pasture life at some point then. I was nervous sending her out with the herd at first,like you worried most about my young geldings being bully's.I first sent her out with just the girls for a few days, they were good.Later I let the boys out & spent my time watching over them to make sure they minded their manners. Well everyone has gotten along & actually find they all watch out for her.Pasture was one thing but then with winter feeding I was worried how she would manage,if she would be able to get her share of the hay without being chased off. I was prepared & expecting to have to separate her to ensure she ate well. Well to my surprise the herd does have it squabbles among the bigger horses but they don't bother her, she can eat with anyone
