I do not mean I have solved the problem in total.. I meant I now feel that I found a soltion as to how to get them apart. Both Lori and I have many years of horsemenship under out belts.
We have both had buddy sour horses we have retrained them. I was worried as how to get them apart with out one getting hurt.
I'm sure I can now take Raven out of pasture and have her at least willing to look at me. Before the mares were so worried about where the other was you could not even lead one away.. would only lead with the other.
I had to find the pinto a new home in order to even begin to work with her.
None of other horses are sour so my feeling is 1/2 the problem is solved. She is now willing to be taken away from the other horses.. no whinning , running the walls , in panic. She is quite calm and today we will start saddle training. I belive the mares had always been together never apart a very strong sisterly bond. Thou lovely see two pretty mares side by side moving like one. Not so when you want to train to ride.
The other mar is claming down as of last night she was standing looking over the gate at Lori's other horses.. we are sure she'll be fine.
I think they just had never been apart and did not know they could be with out the other.. The guy I got him from only had those 2 for 3 years.. They came from the breeder together.. 1/2 sisters most likly were foals in the same pasture..
