It is really hard to work on this stuff in the pasture. Your legs are so darn short. It might just be that when you go to do your corrections, they will say "BYE!" And run a good distance away. Then you will have to chase them down. To me there has to be a better way. I do not like running.

The only problem I have with separating a pasture is the way my pasture is formed.. It's really just a huge square, with half being grass and the other half being woods.

I said earlier it is 15 acres... But I'm not sure that is right. I have a terrible terrible sense of measurement. Anyway, I don't really have a small odd section to fence off because its square and I have to leave most of the grass open for the other horses/cows.

The corner I could fence off is right next to the highway and it would make me SUPER nervous that someone would see her and see that she is easy to catch and take her. It happens A LOT around here.

I'm definitely going to go home and look at my options as far as fencing goes though.. I definitely need to do something.

She is a nice horse and I want to try everything before selling her.

A fencer might be an option. And they make a very visible 1 1/2 tape that looks pretty solid. Its a pretty cheap option. I spent $300 on a decent fencer, 48 posts and over 600 ft of tape ( we have 3 horses and need alot of fencer)... If you partition off a small paddock for this wench you wont need near that much and the fencer itself will be the biggest expense. Plus its very moveable.


Where I used to board they had a big bossy paint mare that would do this VERY same thing when you needed to get in and get one of the other horses.. I found that if I acted like I wasnt in there to do much she wouldnt drive them off, and I could then sneakily position myself between her and the other horses and drive her away from the herd (in a calm walking fashion with my head lowered a bit).. totally took her power away when I did that..also made her easier to catch when she was the intended target, as she would give up easier because I was asserting myself as boss mare, and she could either do as I asked or she couldn't reclaim a place in the herd.

I have a question, why do you pony the bay horse every time you go riding? Has your horse always been buddy sour? I don't see how you can work your horse and get over the herd sour problem when leading the other horse. Leave the bay with the paint and see how she acts, if she doesnt leave I agree with working her hard near the paddock I.e. Yielding, circles, backing etc and resting away. Do you ever ride the bay?

I pony the bay horse for a few reasons. Exercise is good for her, as she is overweight, she enjoys going (I think) and she is really fun to bring along, and it really helps her with crossing creeks/logs/ditches and things like that. I have two horses and only one rider and I want to "ride" them both at the same time!

I switch off who I ride and pony every other time. So, next time I will ride the bay horse and pony the white one. I ride both of them pretty regularly.

Neither of my horses have ever been buddy sour. My bay horse still isn't. I ride my bay and white horse by theirselves away from the barn pretty often and until now the white horse hasn't shown any problems at all and my bay horse still just loves to GO! Haha, she is a trip.
