I have never stalled horses and always wished of a barn and plan to some day have a place to stall for a few hours of the day for feedings. I know some people prefer pasture and others prefer stall but this isnt about what you prefer but your thoughts on the effect of horses being in a stall for one whole week straight.
One of the barns I ride at with about 22 horses is planting seed and going to stall the horses up for a week. I will be taking out 4 horses to excercise and I know most owners are trying to make an effort to relieve their horses of stall time for a little bit even an hour isnt enough IMO.
What effects do you think this would cause besides cranky horses? Im worried about leg soreness.
