    I'd be scared too. Make sure you have a strong fence or electric fence

    Whoaa !! I didnt know that domesticated horses will go with wild ones. I thought that only happend in movies...

    You might want to stall your horses,if you dont have a safe fence.

    Mare in heat might be tempted if there's a cute stallion around otherwise I wouldn't worry unduly about it. Your pampered, loved horses with their own little herd arrangement aren't going to run off to the great unknown.

    I guess I wouldnt worry to much..the wild ones have probably been around for some time..your horses are well aware they are out there..shouldnt react any different then if your neighbors had horses..

    Well, I got Over the First Night. There was a feild by here that had horses and The wild ones toke them. Theirs three mares and a gulding and a Stalion in the wild herd now. So I still have all three. My Dad closed the gate to a big feild that the Wild ones might go in. Mine as acess to a feild, ITs Small but till they pass they can stay in there. We also Put hay down.
    Will that atrack the wild ones?

    It shouldnt ,unless food is really low for the wild ones and they are searching for food.
