At the moment my 2 little ones (a shetland and an exmoor) share a stable that has been split into two with a ply board wall between them. Thing is recently the shetland has taken to going in with the exmoor and standing behind him, as if its a comfort to him. When i first went to see the exmoor he shared a stable with the shetland, but decided to split the stable as i didnt know how they would behave. These two have been together since the shetland was a year old, now 4 yrs old, and was thinking of taking the wall down so they are sharing again. They get on well, have moments in the field playing around but never see them actually fighting. So i was wondering if anyone else does this, how the ponies get on, what did you /have done to make sure they are happy and not fighting etc and do you think its something that i could do? Was planning to do it at the weekend, so if anything goes wrong i can shift one to the spare stable, until the wall can go back up. If anyone has any pics of thier ponies sharing that would be cool.
Oh just to add the stable is 14x12, so they have plenty of space.
