I have a 4-year-old Arabian mare that I am introducing to a new herd. I am moving her from a herd consisting of 2 other Arabian mares, two Arabian geldings, three QHs (2 geldings and a mare), and a mixed gelding. She grew up with this herd. She's been socialized to other horses as she is used as my trail horse and she does fine on the trail with them. This new 8-horse herd is composed of ALL geldings. Wow...I dunno. This is temporary and only for the winter...when Spring comes I'll move her back to the other herd. Tips???

Slowly. Over a fence for a couple of days 1st. Our herd is composed of only mares. I don't know how either, just happened that way.

Yeah...I was thinking that too. There is a round pen there so I may put her in there and just make sure I am spending some time with her each day (grooming, taking for a ride) until she is acclimated.

new herd, socialization
