Can i keep this horse on my land?
i live in the woods. It has two hills making it a valley with a small stream at the bottom. i have enough flat land for a run in shed. i know a regular horse cant be on this land due to tripping or something. But what about a Mule?
I want to ride so bad! just dont have the land for a real horse and not the money for boarding!
i figured donkeys are sure footed, how about mules!!
Just how sloped is this land? Like a cliff?
Maybe you should get a mountain goat instead....
Lol its not like you need a rope to walk. like i can easily walk down it with no problem. i just figured horses had more difficulties?
and there is trees.
Any chance you can post a photo of the land? If it's not treacherous, most healthy, sound horses can navigate hills just fine. Older, unsound ones, not so much.
I also wonder just how steep these hills are... My mare lives in a crazy steep pasture and does just fine, better than fine, actually.
Here's a video of her, cantering downhill, in her steep pasture. And, she's 27 so a younger horse would most likely have even less of a "hard" time. :lol:
My horses are all on a hill, the yearling is on a slightly flatter paddock, but the thoroughbred and welsh are on a fairly steep hill and have no problems with it.
Its a little messy due to fall weather. This picture is taken from the top of my driveway looking down onto the flat land. there is a flattened road going down there too to make it easier to walk down Attachment 81779
Beautiful land and horse by the way:)
Is the ground of good quality, meaning not totaly mud and not horribly rocky? If so, you'd probably be fine.
Its not muddy at all, surprisingly. When we moved here i figured it would be, due to rain run off. But its fine! Stream is rocky though.
Thank you all!!
