Horses and College.
What do people do with their horses during college? My parents said they wont sell my 2 because they know how much they mean to me. I'm just worried that I won't be able give them the time they need when I go to college! (which, thank Goodness, is a few yrs in the future...)..
What do people do?
One of my horses is at college with me. The other two are waiting at home to see me on weekends.
I'm going to college and working full time just so I can afford to pay for my horse. Its hard, especially since I just semi-retired Jake. So that means he spends more time in his stall then before. So I am looking for a pasture to put him in so I can focus on school instead of wondering when I last turned him out. =\
If I go to college this fall I'm going to sell my mare and keep my gelding. I might be able to find a place to board him or he might stay at home where i'll see him on weekends, it will be hard but it won't be forever.

I know that some people lease them out while they're at college.
Mine stayed home. I saw them when I could and entertained myself with the notions that they missed me. I even got to take my baby to school for a demo. He was an angel.
My horse came to college with me. I had no trouble riding 5/6 days per week.
We board ours half way between where my daughter goes to college and home... he is her stress reliever, her exercise, and her entertainment. Cant imagine asking her to give him up! It is not forever. Grad school will be a few hours away tho.. so will have to find boarding for him there... but again, cant imagine asking my daughter to give up her baby while she is in school. Where there is a will, there is a will there is a way...
They never seen to mind being pasture puffs for extended periods of time, if you only see them infrequently.
I pay for mine and keep him about 5 minutes away from my campus. This semester I will probably only be able to ride, 3x per week but I will see him everyday. I couldn't imagine tackling my last year without him! :)
