One of the options I''ve been considering for my horse if I do go to college is keeping her on our two and a half acre property. We currently have two rental buildings on the property, but the rest is pasture and we have two sheep keeping down the grass.
Do sheep make good companion animals for a horse?
My horse has always been pastured with a herd of horses. She's not terribly attached to any of the horses anbd would probaly do fine by herself, but I still feel that horses do need companionship since they are herd animals. Two sides of our property are bordered by people who do keep horses, so she would be able have interaction with other horses over a fence.
Is there anything else I have to consider about feeding and fencing when keeping sheep and horses together?
