    If you can put up a shelter where they had access for rain/snow cover in winter and shade for summer and a nice big pasture, I think that would be ideal. I have some horses that will break out of the pasture, they roll under the hot wire, whats a little zap for some extra hay ..lol
    Some love the pasture. I love the pasture less work for me.

    this is true of my 4...They have a partial barn they can go into but do not do it unless it is really hot and buggy...otherwise they are outside 24/7/365 even in the rain sleet wind and snow...and usually when out there they have a few places in the shade they like to go to relax in the afternoons...my boys have been stalled on occasion when necessary and they seemed to do okay with it, but they are happier out 24/7 and this was true even last winter which around here was a record severe winter...but my boys were fine out there, they are belgian heavy draught horses and grow very long thick coats. They transform into yaks in the winter, lol...their breed is prone to stocking up so I like them to be out all the time where they have to move. They are on 25 acres all the time and it works out well for us...

    outside board, stall
