That is the way of horses, chasing each other off of the best patch of grass and the best pile of hay.
It is like musical chairs we played as a child.
Im hoping as time goes on, this happens less or stops. I was getting really worried as I was about to leave on whether or not she would get her food back and thankfully she did. I made sure of this before I left.
The other gelding wasnt on her pile for long, but still taking her food is still taking her food. It means she gets less food , she wont be as full as she should be and will be underfed.
Im so happy for my mare, Im sure being with other horses again without a fence or two seperating them is a blessing for her. Shes no longer lonely and can be a horse again. And I saw that - she was hanging out with them, walking around in a pack following each other, and taking naps together.
Its amazing what a couple full days of her being in there, and couple full days of me being away do. Big pat on the back and props to my BO for making good judgement and easing her into the herd slowly. I owe him.
Even though she saw me from a distance tonight, I still gave her the day off and didnt approach her (as hard as that was cause you all know how much I miss her).
Tomorrow I will take her out and into the barn and groom her.
The BO predicted right, that she will move above the fillie and she did even though she is 4.5 and the fillie is 10.
