MarkS BS: Anybody on Mudcat a Horse Whisperer? (21) BS: Anybody on Mudcat a Horse Whisperer? 14 Nov 11


Since I figure I can get advise on anything here, asking for ideas and help!
Missus and I had 3 horses, all mares. The oldest passed late last winter leaving the two younger mares, early twenties. After a bit of upset, both got along fine.
We recently adopted a four year old gelding from a rescue agency. We know the keep the new critter separated from the other two to start, bcause we expected some upset, but the change in behavior in the younger mare has been dramatic. She has turned so mean she is even attacking the older mare. Per my Missus, she is acting like a stallion against another stallion. No way will we even consider allowing her near the new gelding.
So - anybody have any tips on how we can safely integrate all the horses together? Anybody had a similar experience?
Mark
