Idea's, thoughts, help.
We have had Polly Anna about month. She is 3.
Dusty came to us on Saturday. He is 14yo gelding.
We didn't introduce them to each other until today we kept a fence between them.
At first, I thought it was going to go real well. They were nose to nose, ears alert. Then all of the sudden Polly Anna got excited, made quite a bit of noise, and raised her front hooves, landing one on a rung of the gate. Nothing serious, she easily slid it off.
We backed her up some. She did it again. I still can't decide if I think she was being mean or just excited. When she was back in her pasture, she ran wild in circles and bucking, etc.
A couple times, Dusty backed off, even turned his back to her, looked like his feelings were hurt, but then he'd turn around excited again.
Any suggestions for trying this again?
