    When two alphas meet...PEACE?!?!?!

    Well, not quite PEACE yet I suppose, but it went a lot better then we thought! We were going to try turning them out in the arena again and using kevinshorses idea of driving them together, but Kelly (head honcho cowboy) said he just thinks it's bad all over, they act different inside then they do outside. So we decided to just let them sort it out themselves.

    We put Justus in the herd first (after taking Jessie out) and she promptly began kicking the crap out of every other horse in there. :roll: She did the introductions, sniffed some noses, seemed to be getting along, and then went "AHA! I AM FASTER THEN YOU!" and just letting fly with her back feet. They learned pretty quick to just avoid her. So we let them sort and settle for about 15-20 minutes, maybe half an hour? They all started settling and eating, so we finally turned Jessie out.

    I honestly do not believe the arena would have gone ANY different if we hadn't led them back to each other - I know we did some things wrong, but I think this would have been a LOT uglier if they hadn't gotten that out of their systems in the arena. Jessie just made a beeline for Justus, and Justus only backed down because Jessie nailed her in the hock (we checked her, she's ok, a bit swollen but not lame). However, they seemed to sort it out quite fast. As long as Justus keeps her distance, Jessie is content to keep "her" herd with her and leave Justus and Jynx alone. We stayed for about an hour, and there wasn't another bout of squealing after the last video. Justus keeps perking her ears and following Jessie, pretty sure she's happy to "give in" and try to find her place in the herd - she's a smart pony!

    Some of the vids:

    POOR BANDIT! He's like Jynx, he's to slow to realize he's under attack and just goes "DEEEER!" I couldn't believe he just stood there, but his blanket took most of the impact I think.

    Jessie going in - not pretty but at least they knocked it off fast. As a note, had this not gone well AGAIN, we would have separated them and just not kept Justus outside for winter.

    Interacting after the one fight - not bad!

    Everyone getting a little silly after from the snow!

    I think they'll be fine - Justus knows to stay away, and I wouldn't be surprised if they actually became friends at one point. Justus seems pretty intent on getting herself into the herd!

    Hey, that's a lot better than it was the first time around! Well, I hope they meet a mutual agreement. (In the least)

    Poor Bandit! He's just standing there in shock...like "what did *I* do?!"

    I think they will eventually work it out. We have biters at our barn and you have kickers! I love how Jynx is trying to back up Justice...and then runs away! LOL I have friends like her!

    She was an absolute riot. Justus is running around, kicking everyone in the chest, and Jynx is flanking her with ears pinned like "DAT'S RIGHT! I'M HER FRIEND! BETTA WATCH YOSELF!" She's been bottom of the totem so long, I think she's immensely enjoying this new "position" with someone to protect her a little, and pretending she's protecting someone else!
