HI
I HAVE A PREGNANT QH, CROSSED WITH A APPALOSSA, AND I HAVE TO KEEP HER SEPERATED FROM OTHER HORSES, DUE TO HER ATTITUDE SHE HAS TO BE KEPT WITH MY DONKEY, WHOM SHE ABSOLUTELY LOVES AND HAS NO PROBLEM WITH, BUT OTHER HORSES, WE HAVE WITNESSED HAS TRIED TO KILL, AND BEAT UP PRETTY BAD, MY SISTER KEPT HER ALONE WHEN SHE HAD HER, SHE WAS A ORPHENED FOAL, AND SHE GOT HER AT 4MONTHS OLD, SO I ASSUME THIS IS WHY SHE IS LIKE THIS, BUT IAM WORRIED SHE WILL TRY TO HARM THE BABY? ANY INPUT ON THIS TOPIC?

It's hard to tell. I've seen some mares that are overly aggressive and they are fine with their babies but I have also seen them hurt their babies. I knew of a paint mare that sounds similar to yours that broke her foal's jaw trying to go after him. I would recommend keeping a close eye on her after she foals to see what kind of mama she is. Good Luck :-)

Cindy- I can't tell you if it's genetic but I can tell you that a foal patterns much of it's behavior after it's mother. As to her hurting the foal, I bet she'll be fine with her own baby but given her own penchant for behavior, I'd wean the foal as soon as possible to limit her transfering her personality traits on to the youngster.

Hi Cindy
I have a pregnant mare called Zip who can be very aggressive as well. She has a very close bond with Honey, one of our other mares (like your mare and donkey) and she will chase other horses, especially our geldings, away from Honey as well as herself! Zip had another foal with us a few years ago, and the same thing happened then too. She was fine again after the foal had been born. Since your sister kept her alone and that she was an orphan, she may be feeling insecure in the herd and is showing her insecurity with aggression. I would keep her with your donkey at least until the foal is born. Another horse kicking out in self defense could seriously injure the mare and her foal
