How long should it last?? :(

Well today has been a rough day. I rehomed my gelding for multiple reasons however my mare who I have had for approx six months who has been pastured in an adjoining field separated by a fence and a hotwire is not a happy girl right now :( She was fine when he left and is not herd bound as she has no problem leaving him home and riding out alone however it was like she realized a little later he never came back and she has been standing at bottom of pasture where she can see the horse trailer he left in and has been hollering for him for quite some time now. I went out to her and she is agitated. Not running or frantic but definetely agitated and yelling and walking around some looking for him. I did coax her up to her stall at feeding time and she is eating although she keeps taking a bite and spinning around to look out the door for him. This is my first time with two and then dropping to one and I am just wondering who else has experienced this and how long it generally takes for them to accept it and stop fretting? She has always been pastured here with goats and sheep so she is not totally alone. They are all still with her. I just feel terrible for her. Thanks for any advice or info.

She'll probably be fine by tomorrow. She may look for him for a day or so but the yelling and frantic should be done fairly quickly.

Thank you for your quick reply. I appreciate the info. I worry about her stressing herself out so much so hopefully by tomorrow she will be more back to normal;)

If she's not a normally high strung, or emotional horse she'll adjust quickly. I have one who will pace 100 lbs off if you change stuff on her, but the other 9 might yell and fuss a little and usually in an hour or 2, they're fine again. So, that's been my experience.
