My horse hasn't been getting out much lately. The pastures here aren't very good in the winter and the outdoor riding ring is all full of ice, so he's stalled 24/7 other than the 30 minute walk I give him every day. I also worry about turning him out because he doesn't have any buddies around the barn. None of the horses seem to like him and I worry about leaving him out without food.
Will ice really bother them that much? Can I still turn him out and maybe throw some hay around?
