new pecking order now
So, we have added two new horses. Sold one and still have the one mare that we've had for many years. We first brought in the 10 year old mare and they hit it off. Got along great. No real bickering at all. After a couple of days, put them together and all was grand.
Just got in another one that is older - 21. Long story but I actually got her when she was a yearling and around age 7, she went to a friend of mine and now she's back with me. She's a sweet heart.
Now all hell has broke loose. Neither horse wii accept the older mare yet. It's only been 4 days tho. The 10 year old that was bottom of pecking order is now top mare and is pretty much bullying both other horses.
They are all separate at the barn area because of the stalls. They can go on the 3 acre hill during the day together since it's a big open area.
The 10 year old mare kind of charged the 21 year old and kicked at her. Didn't make contact.
Will they all settle in in time??
