Still waiting on Justus' stall to go in so they're still in seperate pens, and have to admit I'm kinda nervous about when she's put in Jesse's paddock...but I'm confident Justus is smart enough she knew to just stay away from her at the end of our first session. I REALLY like kevinshorses idea about pushing them both together instead of away from each other! Great idea, totally using that one - thanks!
Keeping Justus outside for the winter is always an option - never been stalled before but I was looking forward to not having to take the winter easy. Not crazy workouts, but not fear her working a little bit of a sweat because I have to put her back out in -40 plus wind and don't have 3 hours to dry her! Every winter before this, we've been limited to pretty much walk/trot and no actual exersize to keep them fit. Every spring then becomes a "get back in shape"...so yeah, excited to try a stall out, but not going to risk harm to Justus for it. If they don't settle a bit in the first couple days - week, I'll pull her and do outside.
