My 14 yr old mare purchased over Labor Day weekend was pacing the fenceline too. My son had 2 old mares , 26 and 30 yrs old, that came with his newly purchased house and didn't want them so I took. My mare is definitely pasture boss and it's been 2 mos now and she's still excessively aggressive I think with kicking more than biting. If one of them enters "her" barn I think sometimes a wall may come down. The old one is just trying to get out and is kicked again and again. We feed grain separately and there is a large hay bale as it is winter here. Water was moved outside as well with a heater so assure they are getting enough food and water. All 3 get along OK around the bale until my mare moves with her ears back and the other 2 flee. Make wide berths around her always. Is there an eventual end to this? She kicks them outside. Is she always in a state of PMS?

^Sounds like 'boss' mare could be a bit of a bully, BUT it could be the environment, being trapped in a barn, in a corner or some such, that your first mare sees insolence in their 'refusal' to heed her looks, so a kick is necessary...
