Biting horse. Is this normal?
I am a new horse owner. I have had my 2 horses almost a year. Jewels is a 15 yo paint mare, who is a very laid back sweet horse. Dancer is a 4 yo QH/Appy mare. She is over all a great horse, but can be a little pushy. Dancer is clearly dominant over Jewels. I realize its normal for there to be a "leader of the herd", but my concern is that I regurlarly find marks on Jewels that appear to be from getting bit or kicked. There are only the two of them and what's funny is that when out on the trails Dancer is more comfortable following.
Is the biting normal or should I be worried??
Thanks for any advice.
