I was at the barn today. Horrible ride with a good ending, but that's not the story.
I was talking to a woman who was there and had her horse boarded inside. Raina was hooked onto the wall and the other woman had her horse on the other hook. I board Raina on pasture board. She gets grass and all the hay she could ever want, along with 24/7 turn out to be in a herd environment. She also has a wooded area to the large field and a lean-to for shelter.
She's fat and happy. Maybe just slightly pudgy, but not grossly over weight that it would effect her health in any way.
When I can afford more, I plan on bringing her into the barn for my own convenience. But that's not for another couple months and again, she is thriving on outside board.
Anyways, I told the woman, who boards her horse inside, that Raina was boarded outside. She asked me "How do you feel about that?"
I wasn't sure how to respond. How -should- I feel about that? I never saw a problem with it. Raina is fat, happy and healthy. Should I be unhappy that I'm not boarding inside? I really didn't understand the question.
This is Raina as of 4pm today
And this is her a couple days ago, coming in front the pasture
The only thing I'm really not thrilled with is the Mohawk I had to give her because she rubbed the middle of her mane down from the round bale feeder. I just matched the rest of her mane to go along with it. But I'm honestly not too concerned about it. At least she isn't covered in burrs! Lol
