I own a 5 year old mare who has a 2 month old filly who is getting more and more aggressive. She was somewhat aggressive before she had the foal and before she was pregnant but really only when you go to put hay in her feeder she is in her stall at the time. I did not own this mare originally but bought her when she was 3. So she came with these traits and they have been manageable but seem to be getting increasingly worse right now. She definately is a pig for food but gets lots so she has no reason to be aggressive unless something happened with her previous owners and I have no way of knowing that. But now I am left to figure out what to do because she has bitten me when my back was turned and has revently tried to kick me and she is not a tiny miniature like my others(36"). She is a beautiful blue roan and has had a beautiful red and white pinto with blue eyes on her first attempt at motherhood so I really need to get her under control. I just wondered if she is worried about her food or if someone has seen this behaviour before and knows how I might stop it without too much aggression. We have a lot of people visit our miniatures and I cannot trust her with any people at this time. Thank you and I look forward to any suggestions anyone can give me. Needing help in Nova Scotia.
