We are definitely moving to the new barn, yay!
I've been slowly hand grazing her outside in the grass each day at our current barn, started with 15 mnis, then 20, 30, 45, and now we're at an hour of grazing a day.
My question is...before I take her to this new place and let her out on grass pasture all day long, what should my "build up" schedule be? Should I go 1 1/2 hrs, 2 hrs, 2 1/2 hrs, etc etc until I get up to a full day? And should that be each day, every other day, once a week, etc?
At our current place, it's hard because I have to hand graze, there are NO pastures or enclosures that have grass in them, so I can't just turn her out for a couple hrs and come back, I have to stand there for 2 hrs and graze her myself. So I'm thinking it may just be easier to have the new barn wean her onto the pasture for me, since they can turn her out in a small grass paddock for 2 hrs, take her in, put her out 3 hrs after a few days, take her back in, etc.
Thoughts?? We move to the new place Sep. 1st :)
