Hello! In past springs my horse has had mild colic due to the spring grass being so rich and I am moving to a new barn, and the grass is even richer their. So I was just wondering what would be more effective? 1. Every other day turnout, or 2. Half day turn outs, does it even matter? I think I will go with every other day turnout since it will be easier so I can just leave a white board on his stall that has the dates he can go out. One guy manages 25 horses so I just don't want him to forget about Ben, if he were to go out half days. He wont go out on the weekends since he has been on that system for years. I was thinking maybe Mon-Wed-Fri he can go out, then for a few hours on Sat or Sun when I am there with him? I just worry about him so much, I am going to colic myself! (I know its not possible ) Which would you decide?
Also once mid summer hits and the grass is less green, he can go out as much as he wants
It may help to know the pastures are VERY clovery!
Thanks for you help!
