Moving a Horse to a Different Farm...
It is official now, I will be moving Breeze from a farm down the road, to a stable where I work!!! She will be there for the summer, and back in the winter. This stable will be great for Breeze, there is a partial indoor arena (it was a hanger, made into a riding arena), a 7 stall barn, a round pen, big outdoor arena, 1 bigger pasture, 1 smaller pasture, and 2 corrals, another corral will be set up for Breeze when she arrives.
Now, my boss and I are going to pick Breeze up in probably June, with her horse trailer, and when we get there, I will bring Breeze to her paddock, and lead her around, let her get use to it, let her explore around her pen, and let her get settled in for 1-2 days. Then I will bring her up to the barn, get her use to going in a stall, and stuff like that. After about a week or so, after we deworm her again (I dewormed her today also) and after she is familiar with the property, we will intoduce to the other horses, and things will go from there. Eventually she will be in with them, and being worked with in the indoor, and round pen, etc.
I do however, have a question...
What else can I do with her, to make her feel more at home there. The only reason I am brining her there, is so I can spend more time with her, because I will be working every day of the week.
So any advice would be great!
