    She was in an individual paddock where she could see other horses. She can see other horses now but they aren't as close. I think I'm think im going to have to locate a companion pretty quick. I discussed this with my trainer before the move and he thought she would be ok with just the barn cats and dog. I may be over analyzing the situation but I won't have her unhappy.

    Treat it like a trail ride or show. Something new and fun.
    This is probably true . I'm a helicopter mom...

    I took the muzzle off for her one hour allotment and she's totally quiet now. She's frustrated about the grazing muzzle. That just can't be helped for now.
