We just brought our horses home (yay!) and my mare has suddenly decided she doesn’t like my husband’s gelding! They were best buds (mutual grooming, etc). She’s been lunging and threatening to kick - never actually lands anything, and she definitely could as she is far more agile than he is. I’m not worried about him getting hurt, just a little baffled.
Our 3 (2 geldings, 1 mare) were all together with 1 other very dominant gelding and our 3 all got along. The mare was bottom of the totem pole, as she always has been with geldings. With other mares she’s either #1 or #2. It’s not a time of the month thing either as she turns all googly eyed over boys rather than the other way around. Even if she had decided she’s now #2 of the 3, I don’t see why she’d still be going after him a week later.
Has anyone else seen this friends to enemies thing? Any advice?
