Where does your horse fall in the pecking order at your barn? Jubilee is a dominant mare so she's right near the top in her paddock, below one gelding who rules the roost. Its funny because whenever I put her back into the paddock, she walks up to the feeder and sometimes pins her ears at the other horses and they leave. What a Princess. :roll:
My sweet girl, Stella, is the wimp of the three. Fat little pony, Ogre, is the ring leader which leaves Luna in the middle. Luna can boss Stella around, but not Ogre. It's so funny to see that little pony push those two around.
When I had mine out at our 4-H barn Scooter was right at the top. He would just pin his ears at meal time and all the others would run leaving him with all the grain. So, we had to start feeding him separately. He was the old crab. Other than that though he was fine. It was just at food time he was a poop. He of course kept the others in line but yeah..not much of a problem.
Hunter was in the middle out there..he just existed.
At home it's pretty much the same. They don't fight much. Hunter tries to take Scooters grain and once in a while Scooter will put him in his place but usually he realizes theres enough to go around and they don't fight. They just chill :)
Arrow's right in the middle--sometimes he goes up a peg or two, or down one, but he's pretty much right in the middle of a herd of 12. For a long time, the top mares could push him around, but he ignores them now. But he lives in terror of the top 2 geldings--in fact, if I'm not careful and go to close while leading him, he'd trample me to get away from them. That's the only time--he respects my space the rest of the time!
Twende's on top, usually. He and another horse that just got moved away from my barn used to be the "leaders" of the field. Twende on top, Ed, second in command. Of course, one time Ed decided to be on top...and it didn't end well for my horse.
