I am so sorry about that Drew :( :( I wish I could change that for you.
The barn that I board at, the horses were off pasture for the whole fall and winter. Now that spring is here and the pastures are growing, the horses are only alowed out there for short periods of time to start.
Horses can colic when introduced to grass too quickly, even for those who live on pasture every summer. Colic is very common in the spring due to horses being introduced to pasture too quickly from the transition from winter hay to spring grass.
So just be careful - go slow.
I get to play the "put horses out for 1/2 an hour on nice grass, then spend another 1/2 an hour trying to catch them and put them back in the sacrifice paddock" starting in May... can't wait |
LOL Beau! I cannot wait to hear the stories of this adventure!
