Cyn that is a hard choice. Having boarded with no turnout unless I'm there to do it (every evening) to having pasture boarded in a herd of 25-30 (no shelter always free to be horses) - your situation sounds ideal b/c it falls right between the two. Having a paddock with a shed is GREAT - babies need to move around 24/7. Being in a herd is great too, but he can develop social skills as he is learning to be ridden and is ridden in groups with other horses and then everything you show him will be part of his social development. That's more burden on you to have to take the time to expose him to other horses and maybe even arrange playtime with other boarders. That's a hard decision - I guess if you wanted to try it and it didn't work out, chances are someone would have moved into your spot and you couldn't go back so that's hard too...

Cynical if that pasture is big enough for him to get out of the way when out with the herd, I would go for keeping him with the herd.
He would not be bored and will probably stop tasting the fence . He will also be more relaxed after he assimilates into the herd.
Nuisance you are no fun. Here I am offering you a free learning experience. Well two if you count the foal watch you refused to participate in.
Here I am being a friend and allowing you the opprotunity to handle some really cute well bred arabian foals and you flat out refuse my generosity.. How rude!!!!

To me a stall and pasture is the beat of both worlds and good for the horses. Protection in the stall and plenty of exercise and social work in the pasture. Yes there will be bumps and bruises but they will be learning experiences.

Dba, if you're going to be around Saturday, I may come visit:)

Yep - there is usually a waiting list for both paddocks & stalls, but a trainer is moving out so 8 stalls will open up. Cash was pastured with his own age bracket up until long yearling, never been in a varied age herd. There are nearly equal pros & cons for both paddock & stall options, so it just boils down to whether I feel $1,200 more a year is worth it for my growing boy to nibble on pasture (despite hours in a stall.) I may have to flip a coin to decide, lol.

I guess I'm just a paranoid horse mommy. There were only 5 horses on 8 acres where I was before, and Henny came out with A LOT more than just "scrapes and bruises." he almost didn't come out at all. :/
