Well, I'm sad for the foals then. And any laws about "not being turned out" are just based in human ambitions, not horse needs, and I deliberate myself to believe that people, who follow their ambitions above the natural needs of their horses, love the goals and the illusions they achieve, not the horses as true individuals.
And, yes, I do understand how show people might disagree in this statement. That's ok, to each by their beliefs.
Just by the way - my horse was raised in the field since day one. Just grass after being nursed by his mother, later hay and oats. Living freely in the herd. He is one happy, healthy and beautiful horse. As well as the filly that was born in my BO's fields and lived 24/7 pastured with a herd since the day of her birth. You can rarely find a filly more healthy and good looking, well developed as her.
I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
