My pony has separation isses with another horse she has lived with for about 10 years. If you try and separate them then they both go absolutely crazy!
So my friend suggested putting my pony in the stable and leading the other one away. I was a bit uncomfortable with this but she insisted that it would be fine. So we put her in the stable and, in short, we took the other horse about 10 feet away. My pony could still see her friend but she was still distressed. We halted the other horse about 10 feet away and thought that as my pony saw that she wouldn't get separated any further, would then settle down a bit. She didn't. She cleared her 4foot stable door. She didn't hurt her self (thank the Lord) but now I am really stuck on suggestions as to how to separate them at all. I clearly didn't realise just how deep the bond was!
Please don't judge what I did, I know now that it was a bad idea but we're all allowed to make mistakes and I have learned something from it!
Ahhh! Jumping out of stable!
