As I mentioned in an earlier post, Annie seems to be very lonely. She turns away from her hay and stands by the gate. She is flighty and jumps at imaginary ghosts. Is she feeling like an outcast? I do turn her out with Scout every few days but I think she's wanting to join up with Yalla! again. She is an alpha mare and her herd is being kept from her. Is that the problem? It has been a month since I separated Annie and Yalla!. Does she still miss her baby? Do you think it's been long enough? I would certainly hate to have Yalla! start nursing again.
I often hear Yalla! neighing to me from the barn, even when I am walking the dog or out by my cars. I notice that she sees everything happening, even in the distance. She seems to be very level headed and after an initial, 'what's that' she heads right over to investigate. Is this part of her cowhorse breeding, that she seems to be so curious and aware of everything going on around her?Notice how Scout could care less?
