So, as it says, I'm moving. Back to FL actually and my horse will most def be joining me soon, but I'm worried because I have had a horse colic and die after moving him. I now know the reason why it happened but I think its safe to say that I'm a little scarred from the event. He was my first horse and without trying to be mellow dramatic, I'm pretty sure I would just die if something like that happened again. So does anyone have some advice on transitioning my horse to a COMPLETELY new environment? Like how much hay should I take with me (all I ever see in FL is alfalfa and I feed fescue in NC) How should I introduce her to the new pasture? What if there's a whole bunch of grass and she's not used to it, or visa versa - no grass in the pasture after she's come off of a very grassy pasture? And anything else you might think of.
Thanks everyone! So glad I found this site!
