Hi Everyone,
Well Faith is now almost 6 months old and she is weaned from Momma (and Momma's off property at new home). I put my usually affectionate QH in with her (since she always seems to be a baby stealer) and now I've noticed that she's been quite agressive towards her. This morning before feeding she grabbed onto Faith's neck and held on for a few seconds before letting go (and now I have to treat a Hematoma). I will be separating them but my question is: Has anyone had this happen with their weanlings and what have they done? I don't want to leave Faith alone, but at this time, I don't want to put any other horse with her because my QH is one of the gentlist horses in the herd). What should I do? I don't want Faith to get hurt by any means but I don't have any other horses to put with her...

With mom gone, it's everyone else's job to "put her in her place" with the herd. Unfortunately, it's just going to be the way it is, until she learns where she belongs. As long as it's not overly violent, I'd leave them together and let them establish the herd with mom gone. Your QH mare will be much more gentle with her now, than she will when the foal is full grown and you put them back together!

Thanks Diana,
I just didn't want Faith getting hurt badly. My mare seems to be quite dominant lately, especially with food around, but this was the worst that I've seen it get. They are still separated from the other two horses we have for the reason that our other QH Mare is quite aggressive with new-comers (she thinks she's in a cutting competition and keeps the new-comer "cut" from the herd). I know that Faith is still learning, but this aggression seems like a "spark" going on in my mare's head that says, "Ok, I don't want her standing right there so I'll grab her when she least expects it...". I'll keep an eye on them. I know Faith will probably be bigger than Juniper (QH) when she's a yearling so it's just a matter of time (she's about 6 inches shorter than her).
