Bringing horse home.

I have a 6 year old Percheron. We never thought we had the room to bring him home until we found out we own the woods one the one side of our land. So my Father has cleared out all the brush and most of the trees. We will be putting up the fence and planting grass, then bringing him home. He is a horse that has never been alone. And hates to be alone. When he comes home he will be alone, other then the minis on the other side of the yard. This area is not big enough for another horse. What should be don't too make sure he does not freak out? Will he just take a while to calm done then get used too it? I am beyond happy to have him coming home, as I only get to see him a few times a week, if that.

Give plenty of attention because congats you are his herdmate. Lot's of stimulation, toys if he likes them. Watch him for boredom probs, cribbing or windsucking on fences or limbs, pacing, and if available, he may even eat sand/dirt.. crazy critters can be a pain, but once he adjusts you will have his attention and can do amazing things.

I'd keep hay available unless he gets fat easy, otherwise you could get him toys. Balls, boredom breakers. Etc.

I will not put my 29 inch mini's in with him. He is 18hh high. I have 10 goats who wont stay in an electric fence had to make a special fence for them. So that wont work.

Can he see the goats, and minis? If he can see them he may not feel so alone.
