It's up and running! A group of us spent all day Doing a track round ten acres. I was in bed last night for eight thirty! I was so tired.
We have one group of 3 quarter horses and another group of 2 TB. They are now all on the track together.
It was great to watch them, the first thing they did was to gallop round and do a couple of laps. The land is on a hill so they had a great work out. The sound of hooves was amazing to hear, a real thunder. I'm sure the dressage lady next door thinks we are nuts.
Now the two groups were grazing in separate areas yesterday but today they look like they have formed one group. They were all sheltering under the trees as it was really raining hard. So I don't think they have been travelling much. I have been told it can take a while for them to do the grazing and travelling thing. The dominant horse of the group did not seem to be quite so dominating as he was tolerating the horses being really close.
We placed hay around the track and tomorrow they will have their meals in a different area. I was talking to a friend, it turns out has this system up and going and she cuts off the track and makes her horses run round the track to get their evening meal. I'm going to try this once they get use to it. We are going to also put down some poles and do a few areas of interest for them.
Thought today it's going to be interesting if one of them don't want to be caught.
