Mine have doors from their stalls to the dirt pasture and free access 24/7. Every day in summer we bring them back to the 4 acre back grass pastures to graze.

Ah, I miss the days of having a chubby one to worry about instead of a hard keeper! Not that I'd want to worry about founder or anything like that, but it looks I'll be stuck with skinny TBs for life

Mine are out 24/7 but they have no grass so they have a round bale to munch on all of the time. I do stall them when it rains for days on end (not often around here).

Mine are out from 7am - 11pm. They are in for the nights, or if it rains. When it gets warm here (July-Aug) they are in from around 11am - 9pm and out all night.

We alternate our horses. Five of them go out during the day, and are stalled at night, and the others go out during the night, and are stalled during the day.

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.

She gets free choice round bales stored outside and ration balancer only ... as well as Remission and MSM with shoes 24/7 365 with Equi Pak in them and she is sound and ridable still she is only 9yo's I have a long time left with her and her expensive ways

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

My horses all have Approx. 30x30 paddocks where they stay during the day. Then I have 3 grass pastures that I turn them out at night (so their coats dont get bleached). And I have a wooded acre that I let them roam free on the weekends during the day. And all their paddock open up to this acre.

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson

gypsy is out 24/7 in the summer & fall [& part of spring if its not too muddy] last winter i brought her in a stall at night. i prefer having her out 24/7 bc i think its better for her & she tends to get hot when shes stalled up. our pastures are very very hilly though & i worry about them being safe in the winter.
