Okay, Need advice, I have a young mare, that is very vocal and herd bound. When ever we take one of the other horses, to the round pen, which is alittle out of her sight. She acts up.
She rears up, and runs and bucks, and carries on, like a freak. She winny's so loud, and she so bad, that you can not hear anything but her big mouth. She does it non stop, she gets the other ones stirred up as well, and they start, not to mention the one you took to the round pen..
I had prospective buyers out to look at my gelding I have for sale, and every time, they took him to the round pen to work, she would go crazy.
So I put her up in the barn with the boys, and she acted up.
Everytime we load up some of the mares, to go off trail riding, she runs around like a freak, and winny's out of control.
We have loaded her up, and taken her for rides in the trailer, by herself, and she fine. But since she is only green broke, we dont take her with us riding.
Now a friend of mine is also having the same problem with a older mare, and a young mare of 2 1/2. She has separted them like I told her, but now the young mare, has started acting up, and kicking stalls walls and so forth. She has never done this before, the older mare, runs and bucks and winny's terrible when they are out of sight from each other.
She has ask for help, but I cant help her, because my one mare is doing it as well to me. I tried many things, and nothing has worked.
Any suggestion, for both of us to put a stop to this herd bound issue we are having with our horses?
