If she's low on the totem pole she may be afraid to be caught for fear
she'll be vulnerable to the dominent horses while confined from running
away. In our field both Welsh ponies pick on the most recent arrival, an
Arabian (O.K. he's been here 2 years but he's still the new guy in their
book). The Arab will not let us walk up to him until the Welsh ponies
are caught and tied up, then he happily surrenders. There's still
another pal in the field so it's not that he's afraid he'll be left
behind, it's just that Kaboot doesn't pick on him so he's not afraid to
have his movement restricted with him loose.
