I have recently aquired a 5yo thoroughbred ex race mare, i'm having trouble with having her out of the field!
She's out to grass with 2 other horses who she gets on fine with, when i bring her out of the field to tie her up and groom or stable her if its particularly horrific weather she won't settle she whinny's to the other horses and just generally gets stressed out pacing her stable and scratching at the groung with her hooves, even if i tie her up with a hay net!
Any suggestions on how i can alleviate the problem and get her to enjoy being away from the others and stand to be groomed?
Any help welcome!

If you can, have the other horses nearby where she can see them and groom her maybe she'll settle down then. Once she gets used to that, keep the other ones further away until she is confortable being by herself.

I hate having my horses buddy sour. I have no tolerance for it. My two year old filly, though many may disagree, has mostly been turned out by herself in a square pen or a small field after being weaned. It also helped with training her because I was her only "friend", and she didn't have a herd of other yearlings and two year olds to be alpha with.
Sooo, my suggestion is to turn her out by herself away from the horses each day. Or you can turn her out by herself ever three or four days, then allow her to graze with the others for a day.
