Paddock for winter?
Just want to say a quick thanks to the people who gave me advice in my last threads, he's listening wonderfully after only two days I can get him haltered after five minutes instead of an hour. Thank you!
My land is mostly woods, with five large natural clearings. Its all fenced. I have a 15x15 barn and a paddock that's roughly 100' by 200'. I take him for a walk every day whether he's in the paddock or not. I was told by a local farmer to keep him in the paddock for the winter since he's six months old, that I have difficulty haltering him in bad weather and that Ill be putting him in the barn at night and for winter storms. He's a little guy, the stable expects him to mature at 42 inches or less. I get so much conflicting advice so I wanted to put this out there and get some other opinions. It seems too small to me.
