I need some advice on this... I'm looking at buying this horse that I've been working with/riding for almost 6 years. But if I buy her I'm going to be moving her and that is where there might be an issue. She has been at this one farm for over 12 years, in with the same herd of horses, in the same field. She used to be the head mare but recently she's started keeping to herself a little more. She's 17.
What I really need to know is how hard will it be on her to move? Would she be able to settle in and be happy somewhere else?
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
