I read an add today that said a mare is a bit mareish, so I assume she can be a bit moody, or pushy. The add also said that, that mare was higher in the heard.
The question I have is: Is there a link between mareish mares, and them being higher up in the heard? Like an assertive dog being the alpha dog in a pack.
Can anyone offer any insight as to the behavior of a mareish mare?
