    Please tell me your joking when you say your horse has NO access to a nice grassy paddock??!!!!!

    Stuff staying with your trainer! Get that horse out of there where he can go and have some alone time in a nice grassy paddock, where he can chill, role, dose and lie down!

    He is being starved of exactly what a horse needs and does best!!!

    Im sorry I am sure he is very well looked after but that is absolutely terrible!!!

    Sorry I do not mean to offend you in any way but that isnt right at all,

    I know I'm originally from virginia where people shunned you if your horse was not out in pasture all day, but I live in California now and they just don't do that here. I have seen one place that does and the board is about $1000. It's because land is so expensive here like the place I board at now is for sale because the owners are loosing money and it's only 80 acres so we don't have trails either :( but they are asking 4 million. My old trainer in Virginia just bought a 600 acre thoroughbred farm for 4.2 million just to point out the difference in pricing. But anyways the point is I can't and I'm not offended but I am equally dissapointed they have no pastures.

    WOW that's expensive!!

    Surely if there is 80 acres then some could be fenced off for grass paddocks for the ponies?? Poor things, you must feel terrible for him.
    I remember when I was at a yard in worcester in the uk they used to make us keep our horses in 24hrs a day through-out the winter usually from october-april and my lot were practically unhadleable. They used to get an hour in our sand menage a day-so calld excercise!!
    My young horse was mad as a hatter- since moving he has been fine as he is out all the time with play mates-the biting and rearing in hand has all stopped, he's put weight on (which was always a problem for him) and so now is growing due to the feed going on growing not stressing.

    I hope your boy gets better soon,
