But what I'm getting at, is horses tend to hurt themselves on things they use every day, much less stuff their not used to/shouldn't be around. I would hate for something horrible to happen too!
I know of a horse who ended up getting a huge splinter from breaking his wooden fence (apparently it was under quite a bit of surface area, and the splinter was more than inch thick of wood.)
I'm sure you've heard countless other stories, I don't want to offend you, but having that boat there looks like an accident waiting to happen, and I would really hate for something to happen.
As far as the horse, he is a looker and very cute! Can't wait to see him shedded out, he's a beautiful mover. He does look part Arab or Morgan, I have two morgans myself.. and my purebred gelding gets mistaken for arabs and morabs at schooling shows quite a bit. He has a bit of an Arab head/neck though, and small enough to be an Arab. (Some Arabs don't even mature to 14h, but they are generally between 14-15h)
Too bad he wasn't papered, so you could find out for sure!
yea I understand what you mean! Not that's not where I keep him, he pretty much stays in his stall. He normaly stays down in the grass but that day he went up by the cows where the boat is and stuff. He's quite carefull with his feet and watchs where he's going. I would let him out in the big pasture but I have a feeling if I did I would never catch him! Lol!! So for now he can only go around out in the cows pasture, witch now its winter so I wont be letting him in there. I would really hate for him to hit something while running in the snow. If he wern't so hard to catch it would be diffrent. But that's for your thoughts!
