Well, I've owned my horse for about a year now, and coming spring, I'm finally bringing him home! I've got a few questions though:
1.I will be bringing my boy home from a boarding facility, and buying a 2nd horse from a different barn / home. Both horses would be UTD on all shots.
Is it necessary to keep them quarantined?
If so, how do you go about keeping them separated?
I don't want them to become stressed over not having a pal at a new home.
2. In the past, we have let our neighbors cows eat down our pastures, and the owners gave us a massive livestock water tub. I am going to clean it down of coarse, but are they safe for horses? Is it sanitary to let horses drink out of the same water tub as stranger cows? ( this sounds like a silly question lol)
3. Due to the cows destroying a good portion of our fence, I am going to get some new fencing. I was planning on this stuff >> Coated Wire
Does anyone have any experience with this type of fencing?
4. I have a 200 x 50 ft heated barn that I'm hoping to use as an arena. Yes it's narrow, but in the middle of the winter I think it will do. Anyway, how much do you think it would cost for footing? I do dressage, so I don't think it needs to be too deep.
Sorry for the long post, Any other opinions or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
