aggressive horse issue...
My horse is awesome I've been working with her nearly every day and she's coming along very nice. She does everything I ask her to she'll stand all day, lead anywhere/over anything, point to the trailer and load, woah, gee, haw, over gee, over haw, and back, on command and is gentle around the whole family. Then today I got an email saying that one of the two new horses brought into her pasture since two or three days ago has gotten bit about fist size by my 1.7yo... When I got her she had been pastured with other horses, when I moved her to colorado she immediately tore down the fence after being introduced to her new pasture a week after arriving to the boarding facility, then I moved her to a stall with run so she wouldn't hurt herself. Then she was moved into a large pasture where there were no other horses but her and a pack of llama's for a couple weeks. Everything was fine she as usual was respectful and responsive. Then they brought an AQHA mare who was very low in the pecking order and not really all there mentally who my filly herded around and did the normal offer to kick pin ears routine but nothing major. Then this horse ended up having to leave and two days ago a TB mare was brought in. She stayed in a seperate pasture for the night and then her and my filly were introduced to which my filly and her apparently fought a little bit but by the time I had gotten there a few hours later they were grazing together but the TB was being herded around. Now another horse was brought in an my filly has as mentioned above bit her quite substantially (to what I've heard via email). I'm not really sure what to do about this I understand horses have a pecking order which needs to be established does this sound normal and like it will resolve itself in a few days or do I need to intervene? My BO suggested I did GW but what type of ground work would work for this situation.
