My girls are out 24/7 in the summer. In the dead of winter, I bring them in at night because it's so cold and snowy and mucky and Ricci is just miserable. Gracie doesn't mind so much, but Ricci really does turn into a miserable little pony, lol.

Both horses have free turnout 24/7, from their stall to the paddock. Year round. They also have anywhere from 4 - 8 hours of pasture time, depending on my work schedule. They seem very content with this set up and it seems to work well for them and myself too.

Our horses are out 24/7 on 25 acres. Our barn is difficult to describe but its essentially a run in that is divided into stalls with doors on both sides. The only time we lock them down is in the truely nasty winter storms. Even then my horse will break out.

24/7 for most of our personal horses. Boarders are turned out at 5:30 a.m. And brought in between 8 and 9:30 p.m. Round bales, auto waters and shelters in all turnouts. Pasture May - October.

Mine are out 24/7 on 200 acres. There are woods and trees to get under as well as a run in type barn for shelter if they want it.

27/7 turnout for my geldings. I do have a smallish run-in shelter (and trees in their pasture as well), but Scotch usually hogs the shelter, so Patches and Kubie have to stand in the rain. That's how it works I guess!

Poor thing I don't know much about laminitis, have never dealt with it...what does she need to be fed to best keep it under control?

P.S. I completely understand horses that need to be kept off pasture for reasons like that. It's just when there's no other reason to keep a horse stalled that I'd rather not.

Jack is out pretty much 24/7 in a rather sparse pasture, if he spends much time on the grass he bloats up like a tick and waddles,lol. He becomes progressively more unpleasant the more time he is stalled so unless its really nasty I leave him out. He has a shelter in the field though.
