New home:how long does it take to adjust?
My 13 yo mare and I were just reunited after 7 years (I was in college, living in places where I couldn't have her). She was living with three other horses and now it's just her. She has 2 beautiful acres of pasture but she won't graze unless someone is hanging out with her, as soon as I leave she goes to stand in the shed. She's dropped a couple of pounds since being moved to her new home despite being fed grain and I'm a little worried, especially because I can't feasibly hang out in her pasture all day long. It almost seems like she doesn't feel safe or comfortable without me (or my husband) there. Is she still adjusting to not having her buddies (I've had her for almost three weeks now)? How long does it usually take for a horse to adjust to a new home/surroundings?
