Going from stall to 24/7 turn out
As some of you may know, Tom and I are moving our horses to a different place. They are going to be going from a small turn out with no grass and being in a stall overnight (from about 3pm-8am) to being turned out 24/7. At first they are going to be in a dry lot and turned out into a grass pasture for an hour a day and increasing it slowly over 2 weeks to being out all the time. They are going to come in to get fed.
The owner suggested Vega getting fed 3x a day to monitor her potassium levels. Is that a good idea to change her from getting fed 2x a day to 3x a day? Is there anything I should be concerned about her being able to graze anytime she wants?
There is also going to a salt block for Gem and Vega to have.
The trailer ride is going to be about 10 min, but I know stress can trigger an attack. Is there anything I should do before, during and after the ride to make sure she's ok?
I'm just a nervous mom and has never dealt with trailer or moving an hypp positive horse.
BTW, she's hypp N/H if that matters or not.
