Teddy, a mini horse, has faced challenges in making friends with other horses. Born to Eleanor, a rescued mini horse, Teddy had a difficult start in life. Eleanor, being fiercely protective of her offspring, kept Teddy close to her side, making it difficult for him to socialize with other mini horses.
Teddy spends almost all of his time with his mother.
Teddy likes to run his heart out to get the other horses’ attention, but they would always avoid him.
In this picture, Eleanor is getting ready to kick this horse in the face for getting too close.
As a result, Teddy was forced to spend time with the dogs on the farm.
Fortunately, over time, the other mini horses began to accept him and Teddy slowly became part of their herd.
The bond between Eleanor and Teddy is undeniable, and it’s clear that she will do anything to protect him. But it’s also important for Teddy to learn how to socialize with other horses and learn from their behaviors.
Mini horses are social animals, and they thrive in a herd environment. Being part of a herd not only provides a sense of companionship, but also allows for learning and socialization.
