I board my horse about 15 minutes from my house. I work several 12 hour days, and have 3 days off. During my 3 days off I ALWAYS go see my horse, however during my 4 long work days I sometimes only get to see him every other day, or even go two days without seeing him. He is at a full care boarding facility so he still eats, and goes outside and comes inside, however I feel so guilty that I can't go see him everyday. I am sure it wont kill him to go a a day without a brush down or something, but I still feel bad.
How often do you see your horse?
I feel bad because he keeps his blanket on and I feel like he might be itchy with it on or not like wearing it constantly for 48 hours. He never itches or tries to tear it off, I am just trying to be good to him.
If he were sick or something were to be wrong I know the barn owners would call but I still always feel so bad when I can't go see him.
Anyone elses imput? How often do you see your horse, do you always groom him or so on. I don't always ride when I go see him I just like to groom him up and take off his blanket just in case he is itchy and give him some attention to break his boring routine of walking around outside and eating....
Working full time and college make it really hard to see him every single day.. :/ :[
