It might be the grain. Easy to test - do something w/o it. :)
My appyX is extremely possesive of me - she is much more like a dog than any horse I have ever had or known. This and other personality "attributes" made searching for a new companion for her difficult. I enlisted my husband to pretend our new addition is his - and I think he is growing fond of the little upstart b/c of it. This charade actually seems to help quite a bit. She allows no dogs or other horses within her "imaginary circle" around us at liberty...I am working on this. But, it often comes in handy if I want to move the new filly - b/c my mare knows the training whip I'll use to direct just can't be meant for her, so she just smuggly stays perfectly at my side, as if in hand...and looks on.:) When I am not around, they have settled in and are civil (I spy on them).
So, yes. It could be possessiveness.
