I Feel So Bad!

I have had my arab mare for more than 10 yrs. She is my everything!! She is getting on in age and things are changing. I haven't ridden her for a long time, main reason I have been trying to get weight on her and she is finally where she looks decent. Even though I haven't ridden her, I see her everyday and spend time with her. My yearling is changing too. She is finding herself in the herd and becoming a dominant mare. I am glad her status is high but she is really pushing it with my mare! My mare was above her but now its changing and my mare is starting to let the filly bully her. I can't stand it! She seems to be giving up. Why? It hurts me to see her status drop. I know its bound to happen but my mare is my love and it hurts to see it. I've had the filly since last February so she's had plenty of time to establish herself but I guess this is just something that happens. SAD! :(

It is sad, but horses have to try and e-establish a new leader every day. Often My mare is the boss but every now and then one of my other horses will pin her down and they are boss for the day... or afternoon. LOL
