I made my pasture into three. So theres a bottom, a middle, and a top. And I blocked the bottom, and the middle and the top, so when they are in the top and bottom they cannot see each other. I put Ayla and mackenzie down below and locked them down there, so they can't even see bella. Bella is up top. Ayla has impressed me so far...
The first day she would hollar back to bella. But its been 3-4 days, and she doesnt even lift her head or go to see if she can see her anymore.even at night when I rotate them, so bella can have grass ....they pass each other, bella goes down and ayla doesnt even look to go down with her at all. I bring them in the barn without bringing bella up first. And feed them...ayla doesnt look outside for her. Now when I bring her up into the barn (bella) ayla does nicker to her when she comes in. But its going more well that I thought it would.
Also the second weekend of sept, there was a horse show we took them to. I took ayla outside without bella there. Once we get outside she wont eat grass, she just hollars and looks towards the barn. My friend brought out her horse, and came over and ate with us.... they sniffed noses, and that was it, she stopped hollaring, she was taking grass out of his mouth....she forgot about bella until we walked back into the barn.... so I am very impressed. She's doing much better.
And its good cause they are starting to build bellas barn soon.....about a mile downt the road...so...the time is coming
God created Quarter Horses, then he Painted the good ones! ;)
