I never really planned to get a horse of my own for awhile, until I - myself - was completely ready with everything I needed (barn, etc), but I guess someone higher seen it more fit to do so now than later! If a stall is extremely important.. I can borrow the money and do so now, but with my roommates going 2 years without one, I didn't see no rush!?!?
Yes! There was no way I was getting the halter on my foal in the pasture with the others. There were too many places to run off and get distracted.
The stall has worked wonders. I've made it part of my feeding routine. I put he and momma together, feed them both, and work while he's eating. Then when they're done, I snap a lead on and take them to the back pasture for a little work Posted via Mobile Device
