The "herd" is actually called a band, for wild mustangs. The band consits of a dominant male, the stallion, and a lot of mares and foals. Bachelor stallions that don't have their own band of mares will often challenge another stallion for his mares. The winner of the battle will get the mares. Some mares have been known to stay with their old stallion if a bachelor wins. Domestic horses do live in "herds" though. there is a lead stallion, he is mostly for breeding and protecting, then there is a lead mare, she is the one in charge, she tells everyone what to do, then, there is foals and mare's. that is who is in a heard and what they're jobs are.
