    I am glad that she setlled in and you guys are getting along! I actually prefer mares! Her size also can make her attitude seem like its more than it is. I get a 16h horse hoping around like a ditz I might move out of the way.. one of the Minis, no worries. Definitely get some riding pics for us! :)

    I actually just got my first gelding in a long time last week. I have had mares pretty exclusively. The thing to remember about mares is that they take things personally. Mares are women, and as a female I can say that and mean all the good and bad that can be contained in that statement. ;) They need more time to settle in and like to be pampered a bit.

    Spend a little time just grooming her and relaxing with each other. Woo her a little. ;)

    I love mares, I love geldings and I especially love a well trained stud!

    However: when you find a good mare.....you've really got a treasure in your hands.

    I'd ask her to do a pile of stuff and see how willing and honest she is.....if you get good responses I'd stick with her.....but if she's sour and not willing I'd let her go.......

    I am way afraid of mares. I just don't trust them. I've ridden them without issues, and enjoyed riding them, but I am unsure I will ever own one. Geldings and studs I am very comfortable with otherwise. Mares just make me wary on principal. But I understand that there are diamonds in mares, I just never seem to find them. And I have interacted with sweet hearts, I still can't give them me.

    If she was bitchy just with the others, she was doing her job. Mares make the decisions for the other horses, choices that help them survive. My shetland mare ruled two horses and they minded her. Watching herd dynamics is interesting.
