I bought a horse at auction this past saturday. I was told to keep him quarantined for 30 days in the chance of strangles. My vet has come out and cleared him but also wants to wait 30 days.
So he has been in his own field about a mile away from my other horses. Well since we had him home he is proving to be an escape artist. Needless to say I used a chain with double snaps last night to keep him in.
Well when I woke up to feed him he was not there. So I went to go feed my other horses in hopes to see him somewhere on the way. Needless to say I found him in the field with the other horses. Not sure how since the gates were all latched up and I have wooden fencing that doesn't bend or move. So I think he jumped my fencing ...grr
My question is : now that he has been in contact with the other horses should I let him stay with them or should I keep him separate? I have put him back into isolation but in an electric and wooden fence field and am waiting to hear from the vet but what do you guys think??
Keep him seperate or qt all the horses now??
