I posted this also on the "equine" form but thought cattle folks might have some thoughts too. We have an 18yr old appy gelding who is well trained, but spirited. He has, until today, been pastured by himself or with other horses. For the winter we wanted him to share pasture barn space with our cows and their calves. Today we caught him running through..busting the herd separating the cows from their calves. Is he playing...or will he hurt the calves? Is there anything we can do other than put him back in a pasture alone? Keeping one animal alone in pasture to feed & water will be a pain....something we would prefer not to do. We need suggestions on how to transition this horse to share food & living quarters with cows.
