Timehop Memory #18

At our old yard Eva was definately a top mare in the herd. I saw her get in between and stop two geldings who were having a bit of a disagreement, I saw her protect youngsters and she even helped people get an injured horse out the field once by hearding the rest of the horses away, not by being mean just a “come on guys move out the way” type way. There was about 8-10 horses in total, the ages were quite spread and it was a mixed herd. They had a massive field so they were really left to be horses and sort out their own pecking order.

On this day last year as soon as I walked her towards the gate the rest fell in line and quietly followed my mare up to the gate.

I was like Eva had told them they were to move to the other side of the field and they all accepted and followed.

All hail Queen Eva πŸ‘‘

  1. Ah the alpha mare. Us girls can learn a lot from the alpha mate. They are brilliant! I love that Eva protected an injured horse that makes her alpha and empathetic what a lovely combination. πŸ’•
