First off, I'd like to say hey, I'm Megan. And if someone has posted something similar than I apologize and would appreciate someone directing me to the thread.
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!
