Horses in Pasture...Help?
Every time I need to get a horse out of a pasture (especially near feeding time) all of the other horses crowd at the gate. The horses, most often, that I need, are lower down in the pecking order, and there's no way the higher horses will let these horses leave without kicking/biting/trying to escape. Sometimes there's someone else who can get some grain and lure the other horses away, but not always. There's only one gate.
So the question is...how on earth do I get this horse out without either getting caught in the middle of a fight, letting horses get loose, or bringing them ALL in?
I'm afraid I'm going to get kicked, and I'm even more afraid one of the horses will get hurt. Please help. Thanks!
