    Still think its strange. My two geldings are running with five mares and none of them have any problems. Never have really. Of course, they all have their "pecking" order, but no real fighting. Now we let a friend keep her mares in the field for a little while and one of her mares actually hurt a couple of the other mares, but no gelding issues. Guess I just am lucky! I've always kept mares and geldings together.

    Maybe your geldings were cut at a age before they learned about mares going into heat and before they got their stallion behavior. Or there is enoughs mares to blance the out so they don't need to fight over what mare belongs to who





    I do remember though when I rode my gelding in a parade behind a paint mare he started to get a little fussy when the gelding behind me tried to pass us

    Your gelding has decided he now owns the mare and foal. He is simply being protective and does not want ANYONE to get in between him and the mare and foal. If you can separate them, that would be ideal and things will settle between your two geldings.
    Thank you! We put fencing up, but by the time it was finished (two days) my gelding could care less and they all get along now! It was just the weirdest thing in the world...

    Thank you everyone! We put up fencing for a seperate paddok, thatt took us two days and by that time everyone a settled down and my geldings are best buds again, and the 13 year old could care less about the momma and baby... we think it was the baby that got him to act the way he acted, as he has been in with many different mares at different times... just shows that horses are unpredictable!

    Thank you! We built a separate paddok for them, but by the time it was finished (two days) they all calmed down and now the 13 year old could care less and is once again best buds with my other gelding... thank you though!
