Should I Get Another Horse???
I am wondering if I should get another horse?
I currently have a great quarter horse gelding that has returned from a stable and training. He had a lot of buddies and was locked up at night in a stall.
I'm trying to determine if he needs a buddy. Chip, my quarter horse, he seems to be really jumpy and slightly stressed at night. He's in a large field type enclosure with a 3 sided 16 X 12 shelter. I'm wondering if he is jumpy because he feels at the mercy of all the things that go bump in the night? Would he benefit with another horse, or goat or sheep? Am I just being silly?
Does anyone have any advise on how your single horse does without a buddy? Would it make him a better horse?
