I just added ( today)a new mare to my herd, she is a bay tobiano miniature. The mini she is in with is fine with her. But the BIG horses on the other side of the fence HATE her. They are charging the fence, and trying to get to her. She is in foal to a mini donkey jack. I know horses get out of sorts but this is borderline dangerous to me. I have her stalled up and they are fine, as soon as she is out in the paddock it starts again.
They were fine when I introduced the other mini last week. I dont understand why they are so upset with her.
The only thing that comes to mind is when she was in uterus her face was pinned against the pelvis of her dam and her snout is crooked. Would this cause my horses to reject her?
She is a precious mare and I can return her but really I like her. I am hoping just a few days will sort things out. Its just got me very nervous! Ive never seen my horses so upset!

Well things are MUCH better today, the horses are no longer charging the fence at her, they still dont care much for her but there has been a huge progress.
Sorry I posted a new topic for nothing LMAO!!!!

It is still good to know that your horses are all starting to get along now. I hope things continue to go well for you and your new addition.

Sorry Holly. I've been off for a few days. Maybe they felt threatened by her because they didn't know what to make of her? Were they protecting foals?

Well, I wonder if it was because they are biggies and the horse she is in with is also a mini, thus they did think that they were protecting the mini. Yesterday we only had one incident with Wrangler charging the fence at her again. It was during feeding time so thats 'understandable' although not acceptable.
For the most part we are making progress. We have decided that we are going to cross fence the pasture so that the minis have their own safe area.
