So ... got 2 horses together -- a 6 year old mare and 17 month old filly
The filly is always looking for the mare ... always
I have been trying to work with the filly but she is always looking for the mare instead of keeping her focus on me
I will walk her around on a lead and when we are walking aware from the mare once in a while she will stop and look over her should to find the mare --- and when we are walking towards the mare she will try to pick up the pace
Not sure if this is an issue, or if I should ignore it.
... side-note ... there is another 19 year old mare in the pasture with them and she is just now starting to feel safe around her --- the majority of the time she is grazing with her mare -- but just today I saw her grazing with the older mare (older mare is the dominant one)
