| || | My mare and Gelding fight....=(
Recently we bought the property next door, so that I could bring my horse home. It's small (only 2 acres)...about 1 1/2 field, and then two separate paddocks with separate stall sized barns in each. Nice little set up. I like it. I thought about it and seeing as how I only had the one horse (my girl), I thought I'd get her a "buddy"....so, I got a halflinger gelding from a friend of mine. (my girl is a paint). I've had them here for about 9 months now. She spent the first 10 days or so here by herself(settled RIGHT IN...seemed perfectly happy)....kind of wish I left it that way!!!...Anyhow, he's always "run" her a little bit, but would quit after just a few minutes. Here lately, he is VERY aggressive toward her! The other day, THANK GOD I was here....I thought they would KILL each other!!! He actually tore some hyde off of her... literally!! (little turd)...they were kicking the crap out of each other!!....then he would take off after her teeth bared, and bite her (he looked sooo viscious)....Thankfully I was able to get them separated and back into their paddocks, but she was pretty beat up....I guess I have to sell him??...looking for some advice. I really like him, but she's my girl!!!!!!!!!....Even when I am with him in his paddock (and he's being really sweet with me), he'll take a minute to pin his ears, bare his teeth, and charge at her over the fence......
