Ok thanks guys!! It's all been really helpful. I guess I could start with my calm 65 lb dog (he'd probably be afraid of the horses-LOL!! No seriously-my guinea pig wa lying on my bed, with my dog, and my dog just laid down and could care less=D), and gradually move up to my crazy 10 lb dog that would eat said guinea pig If given tiny opportunity. And I suppose, since the pasture will be starting about 5m from our quiet road, they will get used to cars. At his current house, they drive tractors around in the pasture and the horses don't really care. It's just the dogs and other things that worry me...Toby seems like a spooky kind of horse. He TOTALLY freaked out when I put my jacket on while sitting on him, but i could have avoided it, so I don't blame him. I just didn't want to get off my 16.2 hh horse and struggle to get back on my 5'2 self;)
Anyways, I'll try those things. I really liked the idea of having plastic tied to stuff so they don't get scared. I could do that with other stuff, right? Like leave a hula-hoop near the pasture, and drive the car around the driveway nearby?
Thanks for the advice!!!
