We turned our yearling back out with the mares this summer. She thought it would be a GREAT idea to beat up on the kids pony. She thought she was tough. Biting, kicking, striking. She was giving the pony the works. Dad was too far away to do anything so he just yelled at her and hoped it would catch her attention. WELL, his yell caught the attention of a different horse, and a rather dominant broodmare at that. She was across the field when she saw what the yearling was doing and FLEW down the pasture to give that filly a whooping. She chased that filly all over the field, through the barn, and up into the upper field. The yearling hasn't touched the pony since.
I agree with the plastic bag thing. Be AGGRESSIVE about it. Chase that little snot off you. If you happen to make contact with her, she was too close.
