I'm interested in how much everyone turns their horses out.
Personally, I don't think I could have Tara stalled 24/7. Even if I was exercising her daily. I couldn't even do it 12 hours a day. I'd feel bad. I just feel like that can't be good for the mental health of an animal that is meant to graze 24/7, 365 That's just Tara though, and probably me being a softy
Her stall opens to the pasture, so she can come in during the day if it's too hot or the bugs are too bad, but just knowing she can go out if she wants to makes me feel better.
