Sleep [b]
Thanks for the hearty welcome! Cindy has been after me to take a few minutes to get on board with you guys and I finally stopped long enough to "smell the roses". It is extremely late, way past my bedtime, so I will delay the lengthy bio and just say, I collect horses and dogs. I love learning new ideas on training, feeding, grooming and being crazy, so hopefully I'll fit right in. Say good night for now.
But before I go, here is a question for you guys.
a 4 yr old gelding raised in a small 1/4 acre his entire life with one other older horse and a crazy owner. He never left the confines of his muddy, grass barren existence, except to go to the vet. His best and only friend in life died and left him devastated.
Neighbor rescues him, by offering to buy him and crazy lady takes money and runs. new owner has moved little guy to my place where there are 4 other horses and ten acres and a barn. Problem. He has been with us for almost 5 months now and still does not get along with the herd. Whenever we turn him out with them, he doesn't respect the concept of earning the right to join up. Instead, he pesters the daylights out of the mares, drives their body guards crazy (geldings) and won't take no for an answer. He has no social skills in horse savy. What to do. He is currently isolated in an acre and shares fence lines with the herd, but is so lonely. The last time we tried to let them work it out the herd formed a wheel with their butts to the outside and begin kicking all at once., spinning in a circle. Any suggestions?

could you try taking just a couple of the geldings and putting them in with him to get a smaller herd formed so when you reintroduce him into the bigger herd he already has a couple of buddies... I tried what you are talking about with a mare and several horses and it never worked until I had other horses to introduce into the herd at the same time so she wasn't the only one going into the established herd at the same time. They wouldn't even let her drink... Now she is one of them w/o a problem.

We are currently weaning colts tomorrow we will put mommas back into the big herd in order to do this we will have to really shake up the mix it will mean the big 10 will really change the 2-2yr old get pulled along with the yearling, grandma and the 4 yr old... then the 2 mommas can go out. In July Grace gets pulled with the 3yr old and then will add 2 other mommas and Bella... the games never end with mixing and matching Smile to get it just right.
