I understand why you would stall a horse. But, I never understood stalling 24/7, then again, I've been lucky and have had pasture for my horses, my whole life. But, when we got Cat, she had been in a 20'x20' corrall her whole life. When she got out on that 5 acres, she thought she had died and gone to heaven. 2 yrs later, that girl still runs and runs, bucks, crow hops, all day long.... well she did until she got so friggin fat, now she waddles and tries to buck! lol
And those padded shoes.... don't get me started!
