I've got a 23-year old mare who is about 10 months along. Just got her from out west where she was kept on range, so we have her on pasture except in the heat of the day. Since she is new and so far along, I hate to throw her out with my other two horses, but she is pacing the fence line non-stop trying to get with them. Any ideas if this will cause problems for her or the foal? On one hand I'm glad she's getting shaped up. On the other hand I'd really like to keep what weight she has on her as she gets ready to foal and start nursing!

How are your other horses responding to her ? I guess if it were I and she is use to being with alot of others and yours will accept her , I would let her in with the others, I am sure she would be more comfortable with it if all else is good with everyone.

Good luck

How do your horses generally respond to a new horse? If they are usually pretty good I would put your new one in with them, chances are it'll be less stress than her pacing the fence wanting to be with them. However if they aren't great with new horses... Most of ours are, but I do have a couple I wouldn't introduce to an older pregnant mare because I know they're quite aggressive with new horses.

Well, problem solved for now! I have one very lazy, fat gelding who minds his own business (eating) and one domineering mare who pushes everyone around. So this morning I put the broodmare out with the gelding and the alpha mare out by herself. Gelding and broodmare have spent the day filling their faces and alpha mare is so quiet in her little mecca that I have to wonder if she's spent all these years chasing the other horses around just so she could have her own pasture! :-)
