Last night I was not able to chase them away at ALL. Like not even get them to back a step away from me. Flailing my arms, charging at them, yelling, got zero response and every time I would try to walk away from them they would follow, occasionally with bouncing around in the group which had me nervous about getting run over as they were also arguing with each other over who got to get the closest to me. Meanwhile my mare was staying far away. Today I will take a whip with me and the herd WILL stay back, hopefully I can earn some respect from the group although I suspect I will then have to win over Angel as she can be kind of spooky in her own right and will likely be upset by the ruckus. *sigh* I'll keep you posted on how it goes.
