Aww we had the same thing happen to our orphan foal that we adopted. Everyone picked on poor star-baby til Scooter, a big lug of a SSH stepped in. She went from not understanding horses and thinking that people were now she loves scooter and wont go in her own stall...she has to stay with scooty. Its too cute! He is teaching her how to be a horse and most importantly, how to groom him...LOL Hes gonna wear all the hair off her withers by the time hes done!

Aww that is soo cute. Love the piccos! hope it works out fine

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

This makes me so grateful my one mare gets along well with every horse. She can go in with the little babies or the crabbiest alpha mare and fall into whatever role. She's a little shape shifter with the gentlest soul.

Hopefully she will stop picking on your little one soon. Sadly they need to work it out themselves.

The mare has gotten a lot better with the foal, actually better than the gelding now! She still is making faces at him, but not once have I seen her actually nip at him. The gelding is actually the one being a jerk now, I think he is sick of having the colt shadow him. The colt has a couple spots of hair off him from the gelding biting him. Joe is just going to have to learn to give the big horses their space. He is a really smart little guy though, hes already learned with stall is his to be fed in. The gelding has been here months and still can't figure it out, he probably never will haha

Brood-Gelding! I can't say I've ever heard that before. That was a good morning wake up.
