Settling A Horse Into A New Home?
I just bought my first horse, and he will be going to a boarding stable not far from my home. He arrives this Friday and I want to make sure the transitions goes well. He is used to long trailer rides and stuff so i am not too worried about that, but he has only been introduced into a few new homes during his lifetime. Since I have no experience with this either, I would like to have the input of some more experienced horse owners. How do I set up a good bond with my horse..? How do I relieve the stress of travel and being in a new place..? Anything I can do at all to help him setlle in nicely to his new home would be appreciated. Thanks :)
