Hello all! My mother got a 10 year old mini mare to add to her hobby farm about 4 months ago. She was joined into a barn/fenced-in area with two 4 year old Nigerian Dwarf goats (no horns). Prior to the mare moving in, the male goat dominated the female goat and the female goat was terribly shy. The male loved people but the female wouldn’t let us pet her. This all changed when the mare moved in. The female goat became dominant and very aggressive toward the mare. The first few weeks were bad - the mare was scared to leave her corner. Things are better now, but the female goat still bullies. She will go out of her way to ram into the mare. The mare is constantly on edge when the female goat is around. And it’s really affecting her attitude towards us humans as well - the mare has become unfriendly and uncooperative. As an experiment, I locked the female goat in the barn and sat inside the corral. After a few minutes, the mare came up to me and let me pet her for an extended period. She would never do this with the goat around. Oddly, the female goat is also now very friendly toward people. It’s like she’s had a personality transplant. But I hate to see the mare always on edge. We’re also trying to retrain the mare on groundwork and i feel awful ending a strong training session by throwing her back in to the pen with her bully. I would love to get your advice on helping this mare assert herself with the goat and regain some confidence. We REALLY don’t want to have to re-home anyone. No one is unsafe, but there is plenty room for improvement. Do you think adding a second mini to the mix would help or make things worse? Thank you!
