Quick update on my situation - today when I got there Kid was the only gelding anywhere in sight so he was no problem. I had to go out into the field to get Angel who was actually out in the field grazing (first time I have seen her not standing at the fence hollering for Kid) with the other mares. Everyone stayed put until I had the lead on Angel and started walking to the gate, then they started coming up behind us and she started getting antsy. I turned her around and we went straight towards them with me waving the lunge whip at them. They scattered but she got upset too. It took a couple of rounds of us shooing them, me calming her down, starting towards the gate, turning around to shoo them, etc before they gave up & went back to grazing and we were able to leave the field unmolested. Progress!
