I got a Welsh cob half a year ago. He has been kept at grass for the whole time with 6 other horses. My parents have decided that it would be cheeper and handier to move my horse to a field closer to home now that we have permission from the fields owner. The problem is my horse would never even stay in a stable on its own when he was at the livery yard and I am worried that if I move him closer to hme he will jump out to go back to the other horses.
I have heard you shouldnt keep a horse on its own anyway but I often see horses on their own in fields and they look happy enough. I also read that goats or sheep make good company for horses so we wouldnt have to buy another horse. Could anyone give me any advice on this? Will my horse jump out if he is on his own?? Should I not attemt to keep him on his own at all?? Will a goat really become his best friend???
