I am picking up my first horse on Saturday. He will be at a boarding facility in an individual paddock for now. Ultimately, I hope to move him to the pasture. Any tips on getting him settled into his new home?
I just wen through that. I had my horse in my out door arena (right by my horses field) and so they met eachother through that. He had worms when he came so it took a while longer before we could have them meet but when they did they did awesome so just let him settle in himself and he'll be fine!
When you do move him into the pasture with the others, do it in the morning. You want to have time and daylight to keep an eye on things the first day and clean up/treat the cuts/scrapes/bites that always happen.
Well, we got him to the barn on Saturday. Got a few pics today. He's pretty dirty, I guess that goes with the territory when owning a white horse He is getting to know his neighbors in the runs next to his already. I think he will do just fine.
