The leader of the herd is usually an older mare.
Even though she is old and may be physically weaker than the others, the Alpha Mare has had more experiences, more close encounters, and survived more threats than any other horse in the herd.
Welcome to AlphaMare, home of The Mare’s Nest,
My blog about life with horses and the often crazy people who live, love, and work with them.
Get in touch!
I’m always happy to connect with people who visit my blog, whether you’re a horse person or not!
