Can YOU guess the boss?
How much do you know about herd dynamics? Who gets priority access to resources?
We’ve all heard about “alpha mares” or “dominant personalities” – but how accurate are these simplistic descriptions?
We took the three ‘top’ horses from an established herd and put them to the test! See if you can predict which of these guys is the ‘boss’!
I’m not going to spoil the result by discussing this topic here, but we have future articles planned to go into detail and explore this fascinating subject further.
In the meantime, head on over (and subscribe!) to our YouTube channel and let us know in the comments who you thought would turn out to be the ‘boss’. We’d also love to hear about your own horses and the relationships you’ve observed between them!
