Appy, how they can be worked out together? I assume should be another person around at least.. :) Or there are other ways to deal with it?

Delete, I don't quite understand how running in field is related to only one person can ride the horse to sending to slaughter?
you could get a goat! they say goats are great companion animals for horses :)

Agreed.

Does sound alot like seperation anxiety. Because there is only the two of them they are a pair bond, horses naturaly do this in herd situations only they would choose the pair bond themselves. But they have been put together and so have created a closness and it sounds like the qh is the dominant one out of the relationship, and so is kinda growling the paint for leaving,lol my boy Banjo used to do that when my cousin brought her horse back from pc :roll:

if you have the time and patients and means to do so then i would suggest...........
Riding were the paddocked horse can still see the ridden horse. Do that untill you are certain the paddock horse doesnt worry any more, gradually get further away, combined with short times of were the paddocked horse cant see the ridden horse.

The paddocked horse just needs to realise that when the other is taken away they are coming back again, once they know this they will be able to relax.
