Hey Ryle, have I mentioned how great it is to have you on this forum?
Here are my answers:
1. How old is your horse?
Not sure, don't own it yet. It will be young, could be from a weanling up to a few years old... I'll let you know details as soon as I purchase one!
2. Is your horse stalled all the time or turned out? If turned out, is it pasture or dry lot?
24/7 turnout on a pasture
3. Do you pick up feces every 2-3 days in your horse's turnout?
I don't believe I will be doing that if it's run with the other horses, then no, the pasture is very very large. If it's kept in a smaller pen, then I will probably be going through whenever I can to pick up manure.
4. Are there other horses turned out with yours? If so, are they dewormed regularly?
If it's turned out with the other horses, then yes it will be with other horses, but I might opt to keep it in another pen close to other horses so it doesn't have separation issues. Regardless, I'm not sure what kind of a schedule they have the horses on.. I would defeinitely find out, and if they don't even know (they're your typical acreage owners) then I'll offer to do their horses at the same time as mine.
5. What are the general weather conditions in summer and winter? Extreme heat or cold for prolonged periods?
I live in southern Alberta, which is very dry no matter what season it is. Normal summer temperatures range from 20-30 degrees Celcius but can spike to 40+ degrees for a couple of weeks at a time. Winters are pretty mild for the most part, but are very dry. We do have our cold snaps that can sink down to -40 degrees Celcius or lower with wind chill that can last for a couple of weeks then it will warm up. We also have chinooks in my area....
I hope this helps! Thanks again, Ryle!!
