I've got a field with two Appaloosas and one Anglo Arabian. One Appaloosa is a young 3 year old filly, the Anglo Arab is a 9 year old mare and the other Appaloosa is a 5 year old gelding.
Admittedly on introduction we had a huge issue with the Gelding relentlessly chasing and biting the younger Appaloosa to the point where he was tearing her skin even through a dense 2 inch thick rug. Both parties were exhausted and we separated them again until around two weeks later where my filly jumped the boundary fence.
This time there was a small scuffle but the younger mare had figured out that kicking his face would stop him from attacking. (He doesn't kick, only bites.)
However, it seems he still occasionally has biting fits. E.G if any of the mares come into season or he's bored. It's a shame as the majority of the time they're happy to graze/play with eachother.
Does anyone have any recommendations on how to stop this or at least so he's gentle about it. This is my fillies third rug in three months :')
You can see a video of him biting her on my instagram [here]
