Jumping? and Pine bedding?
We haven't had this 21yo Arabian/Holsteiner mare long, but she's gotten out 3 times. If you sit and watch her she grazes...no problem. Turn your back 10-15 minutes and she's gone.
This afternoon I had an exterminator spray house and garages (stink bugs), so he had to run a pump and spray hose. I talk to the guy a few minutes and horse is gone.
I grabbed lead rope, found her...she's trotting away but came back to me. She won't jump if we're watching her, and jumps different places. Today it was off of retaining wall near her stall...but 5 feet down! I have 100' heavy 6000# test chain on order, I'm running two strands there, then electric white ribbon above.
We haven't ridden her yet, my wife's afraid she'll jump somewhere when riding!
She's a sweet horse, goes up perfectly, I pick her feet up fine.
Any thoughts on this? She only had one owner who jumped with her, and dressage.
Other question is the new horse barn I had built all concrete. I installed rubber stall mats, then straw+pine chips.
Today there are wood cutters in area and I told them they can dump chips on my place. This is shredded pine that has some needles mixed in. Would that be ok to use some? I've been cleaning stall every 2 days.
Thanks...sorry for the long post.
