I hope someone can answer the question that comes after the long explanation.
I am looking for a companion for my mare. My gelding is on pasture. She is very much a "momma's girl", but I can't stay w her all day and night, short of building her a casita. She has an "eating disorder" that only surfaces when around other horses - she vacuums her food up at an extremely dangerous rate of intake in order to make a run at other horse's groceries that are entirely separated from her. I was thinking this might not happen w a little guy, since she might not view it the same.
After reading many of the posts on this mini forum, I noticed several people say not to put them with full sized horses. Ever?
