So I've just bought my new horse. I've only had him a day and I'm already becoming increasingly worried. He's a large, thin skinned Thoroughbred who is used to being in a stall all day during the hot summer months to stand infront of a fan. My Appaloosa could care less and would rather be outside even if it was hot! For some reason, I'm very concerned about my new one. I do NOT want him overheating because he's so used to being in a stall. Stalling him during the day is an option, though would not be ideal due to the extra money(already paying 450/month). It will be what I will do if I cannot find another solution, though.
My new boy is in a large 5 acre or so pasture with a field mate. Only them 2 so they can both fit in the run-in. It's still WAY too hot, though. Their field is quite a bit away from the barn/BO's house. I do NOT see running an extension cord working out due to it being so far away. What can I do? I'm extremely close to just shelling out the money for his comfort in a stall all day with fans, then turning him out at night. Someone please give me advice cos I'm worrying up a storm over here!!
