Advice Again Please.
Thanks for the advice on Blue- I added electrolytes and also blocked off the auto water and sure enough he drank about 3 buckets yesterday afternoon. I was getting a bit worried about colic.
Now I need advice on something totally different. I have one horse on my property (a boarder) that is nice to people, most of the time, but VERY nasty to all other horses. He is the one that chased Gus over the fence and through the fence. I currently have 2 pastures. One has 3 run in stalls and one has 1. The one with the single stall is actually the bigger pasture. Nasty horse has been over on the larger pasture side alone for the last few months because he can't be trusted with any other horses. That stall has a lot off of it and that is where Blue has been. Blue spends the night in the stall and Nasty horse spends the night in the pasture and then they switch for the day. Well to switch them I have to put a chain under Nasty horse's chin because he will try to attack Blue when he is lead by to go out to the pasture. Today I was getting ready to switch them and Nasty horse came THROUGH the fence to attack Blue. Blue jumped sideways to avoid being bitten and jumped basically on top of me. I am not hurt and Blue was really struggling on how to get out of that position without crushing me or getting hurt by Nasty horse.
So anyway this is the 2nd fence that the nasty horse has destroyed. I don't have the facilities yet to have a horse that attacks every other horse on the property. Nasty horse did get along with Midnight but when he left Nasty got even nastier (is that a word...?).
I love his owners to death and also love having Gus (they also own Gus) here but I can't endanger every horse that comes on the property because I don't want to offend them. What should I do?
