Turning a horse out..
My horse hasn't been getting out much lately. The pastures here aren't very good in the winter and the outdoor riding ring is all full of ice, so he's stalled 24/7 other than the 30 minute walk I give him every day. I also worry about turning him out because he doesn't have any buddies around the barn. None of the horses seem to like him and I worry about leaving him out without food.
Will ice really bother them that much? Can I still turn him out and maybe throw some hay around?
The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being. If you never love a horse, you will never understand.
