Is going nuts in a fresh paddock normal?
We have owned our new property for about 6 months now. It is the first time I have had to manage the paddocks for my horses.
Whenever I move my boys into a fresh paddock they all go nuts. Galloping around and playing/bucking/rearing its all go. This lasts for maybe 5-10 minutes before they settle down. Is this normal? Is it just the excitement of a new paddock?
I want to add that they do not threaten me in anyway with this behaviour. It is only aimed at each other. In fact I quite enjoy watching them play and run around.
