I feel like I start all my threads like this and am so excited I only have two weeks til I can change it, but, I am bringing my two geldings home in a couple weeks and need some advice on getting them acquainted. I have about 1.5 acres total, split into 3/4 lots, one pasture and one a dry lot, fenced with 4 strands of electrified rope.
They have never met each other and stay at separate barns. Nova is the alpha in his gelding herd where he is currently stabled, and is a big boned, 16hh morab. Soldier is near the bottom of the pecking order in his mixed gender herd and is a hair above pony height, quarter horse.
It has been suggested that I get Soldier into my pasture first, spread out plenty of hay piles, then bring Nova in. I like this idea, but would appreciate any opinions.
