Problem finding my horse a buddy
I don't know where to put this so I just thought I'd put it here. I've had my horse for 4 months dec. 7th, and he still doesn't have any buddies. He's boarded at a local barn owned by my town so buying him a companion isn't an option.. There are currently 12 horses at my barn, 2 of which are pacers that don't get out much so they're out of the question. None of the other horses seem to like him and bully him. I put him in a pasture with a Belgian Morgan cross mare, a little miniature horse, and an elderly quarter horse who the people at my barn thought would be good for him. It turns out that the big mare wouldn't let him move anywhere! If he moved even a foot, she charged at him with her teeth barred. I was considering this other mare at the barn but I can't even put Java in a stall beside her and there's an all out bucking war at the stall divider, squeals included.. I don't know what to do here, I don't want my horse to be lonely and I don't want him to be injured by another horse.
