My question might seem odd but I’m a newbie to horses and I’d like to know if it’s true that when a stallion is about to fight with another for a mare, or when it wants to protect its position in the hierarchy or gain the leadership, then it will try to position or hold itself in a way that it seems larger?
I might just have dreamt it but I think I heard something like this.
Could you, please, be so kind as to tell me if there is such or a similar kind of behaviour in horses, and if yes, which situations it happens in and exactly what it is the stallion is doing?
Thanks a lot!
(P.s.: I didn’t find an appropriate subforum for the question, hence my posting it here.)
