I have two horses a gelding and a mare who are paddock pals. My mare is due to foal in aprox 6 weeks and the thought of seperating them for this occassion is a horrible thought.I'm after any thoughts on leaving them togther,giving the fact that they get along very well with mutral respect for each other

I have a mare like this she is so bad that if i put the halter on the other horse she circles him. She had a foal two years ago,i hired a foaling alarm and left the gelding in with her. When the alarm went off i took the gelding out of the paddock while she was having her foal and put him in the paddock along side her. She didnt even know that i took him out, after the foal was up and drinking she called out for him, every time he came over to the fence she lunged at him she was happy she could see him but she didnt want him anywhere near her baby.
cheers zoe.
