your horse should be happy , he will be able to eat and not be in fear of being chased ,kicked or bitten. You need to make sure the horse is not a real dominant personality, just because they are older does not mean they wont be the boss. Same for the donk or mule.

LOL, everything you need to know about keeping horses at home could fill a book the size of an encyclopedia.

BUT, it sounds like you've got all the really necessary stuff down and I can't really add to what's been discussed here.

Enjoy having him at home. Personally, I couldn't imagine not being able to walk right out and see them daily...or hourly if I wanted.

If you have anything else come up once you get him home, don't be afraid to ask here. We'll help where we can .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Loose salt even if you provide a lick. Pickling salt from the grocery store will do. Horses prefer loose to a lick which sores the tongue.

For loose salt do you put it in a tub in the barn?
