Sorry to add this! It's kind of random. But do you think my new horse that I'm getting today will be ok by himself and settle in? He is a 10 year old paint gelding. He will be alone in his pasture, but he has cows across the fence and 3 geldings across the street. Also, he was only at his old home for 2 weeks, but was low in the pecking order and alwasy got beat up by other horses ( he was too nice to fight back haha poor little guy). ANYWAYS the owner said he'd rather live by himself. Is this true? Do some horses prefer to live alone?
