Yesterday, Alli finally got her much desired field friend!!! The horse seems fine, friendly, well mannered, and beautiful of courese, but Pip's owner is already being a little... strange...
She wont put the horses in together incase they get 'too difficult to separate'. I know I can ride Alli away from field companions- have done before- and Pip doesn't seem to difficult to handle.
She loves her horse and obviously does her best to look after him, but she doesn't want pip and Alli in the same field together! I was like 'sorry, what?' at the moment they are separated by a wall and Pip comes in at night while Alli stays out and they do seem to be getting pretty well bonded. As far as im concerned, horses are ment to be together. Alli is deffinatly more stressed when she knows there is another horse but can't see it. This means she won't put her head down to graze so she isnt grazing much at all which is causing her stomach ulcers to show up again.
With only each other for company am I right in thinking it wont make much difference if there is a wall between them? They will still get attatched.
What do you guys think? I don't want to put this woman in an awkward situation by pressuring her, but I really don't think it will make all that much diffenence if there is a wall between them or not, as far as attatchment goes.
