    And I've taken their advice into consideration. But she isn't fed on the same side as another horse (that would just be stupid and asking for trouble). Her stall wall goes up 3ft or so from the stall so she can't see the other horse, unless its across the isle way. She has been moved to a new stall where she can move around a lot more (it has individual turn out). None of the horses at the barn are allowed out at night because of the possibility of them getting loose and the owner is the only one there so if all 13+ horses got loose she'd be the only one to catch them.

    Also she is bored because all she does in the stall after finishing her night hay is stand around. I don't know about you but that would make me bored too. Also if you had read the original post then you'd have noticed that I said she also doesn't like being stalled. Some horses are like that. I know a draft that will kick his stall door down so that he can get outside because he's never been stalled his entire life, and doesn't like it.

    I don't like hobbling and will never do it no matter what anyone says; its my opinion no one is going to change that so people might as well give up on trying to convince me to hobble my mare 'cause it ain't going to happen.

    Well hopefully her being in a different stall with more space and an individual turn out will help. My horse hates being stalled and can't be stalled overnight or all day because he will find things to mess up (used to turn over his huge water buckets overnight and play with them) so I'd hate to be in your situation. Have you gotten mats yet to try putting on the walls? I could see that working well- I wouldn't have thought of it until someone posted it on here.

    I know, she's a lil hellfire. LOL. Besides the kicking in the stall at night thing she's the best horse I've ever owned, everyone loves her. I run her 2D/1D, but she can also be ridden by kids in 4D/3D.

    One of the 3y/o's at the barn does that! He's even used it as a pillow once! Can't imagine that is too comfortable. LOL.

    See I had even used a rope to hold it tight in place in the corner of his stall and he still found ways to turn it over during the night.. The BO probably thought I just never gave him water :/ sometimes horses do things that don't make much sense..

    Its like no... he's just special. My friends horse dunks his hay in his water no matter what. She's tried spraying it down a lot, or a little and he just likes dunking it himself. :p

    Parents had a horse like that. No matter how far away in the pasture they put his hay he would carry it to the water tank one mouthful at a time.
