    Hello! I've been told that you cannot keep just one horse as they are herd animals.

    Last year I got an thoroughbred ex-racehorse for my birthday and I was thinking about getting him a companion for company. I want either a pony or some other type of animal because I'm not ready for another horse. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of a good breed or other animal??

    Hi guys, I know this is an age old question, but I couldn't find what I was looking for from the search bar. I only have the one horse now, and she's been on her own since Friday. She has been fine, but being a herd animal, I feel it very, very wrong to keep her alone. Luckily, with it being...
