Attatched Horse?

My grandpa's gray mare I'm starting to believe is attatched to
my mare, Chava. She follows her around everywhere in the
pen and when I'm riding Chava around the yard she constantly
runs around the pen following us and making all kinds of racket.
I rode her down the road today and the mare constantly hollered
for her after we was long out of site, which made Chava start
acting up wanting to go back home.After our ride today, I
tied Chava out to eat some grass and themare stayed in one
part of the pen constantly staring at Chava. When I go to
put Chava up, the mare gets really excited knickering and runs
up to the gate.

It's actually very annonying, and I'm thinking it is one of the
problems why Chava has been being hard headed lately when
riding not listening to me because that mare constantly calling
for her repeatedly. What I also don't understand is we have
another mare in the pen and she doesn't seem to care for her,
but she's infatuated with my horse!

Maybe I should avoid riding Chava around where
the other horses are?

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

buddy bound-sonny has a pal fuzzy he is the same way-fuzzy hollering and sonny hollering back-sonny is actually hard to control when that is going on so i quit going during the day when they are in pasture-Donna the BM says noooooooooooo work him through it make him mind and dont let him get away with it. I ride in the arena where fuzzy cant see sonny until they quiet down then go out to the outdoor arena. a little separation is good for them i think.

I agree, maybe have them separated for a little bit? ;)

Ride more, worry less.

There is no way I can seperate them, we only have one pen in
which they all stay in. I honestly don't understand it, they've been
together and this behavior for both of them just started. I'm
hoping this will turn out to just be some sort of phase, the only
time they are seperated is Friday's when i trailer Chava to
