I have 4 of my own horses and one boarded here, yes there is as us humans call jealousy amongst them. My mare's baby who is coming up 4 likes most of the attention if I am giving the others attention and so does the boarder's horse who is going to be 5.
Like others have said you have to be the one in control, I don't allow mine to get pushy, nipping at each other or any horse play when I'm in there......if they get pushy or nip at another I will chase them out and when they do stand still nicely then they get attention.
My mare also pouts LOL it's actually funny, she also will take a few steps away when I go out to get her but she always stops, all horses have different personalities....I love to watch a herd and how they interact with each other.....
My horses are the joy in my life.....
