Horse in BarnA horse in the barn
When you move your horse to a new stable, you need to quickly introduce him to a new, experienced practice. Once in the new barn, put him in his barn with straw and running freshly, (a small riders' camp when he will be on the pasture) and let him get used to the places of interest, the noises and the stenches.
Every conscientious stablekeeper will take the temperament of the horse into account when selecting grazing companions. Usually low in the flock tree, they should be grazed together where they are not plucked by more dominating herds. If you are about to throw your horse out with a group of odd looking ponies, take a stroll in the fields first.
Aim is to show him the limits, the watertrough etc.. So you can present him to the other cats. Now is the moment to retire and let your horse be himself. In general there is a lot of snooping and maybe even a little squeaking and even a few facial features when the horse is training between them, who is dominating and who is low at the post.
You' ll find that your horse will quickly bind to one of the other ponies, or you'll find that it will move on its own to further exploring its area. At Annapolis' fall he walked to the lake and within ten min he rolled in the shallows, covered himself entirely in sludge and generally had a great quality of life!
So if your horse is a mare or foal, try to postpone the move or at least not with the other foals until she is not in use. When the new stable uses a different food than your horse is used to, it is very important to switch to the new food step by step.
In the first few working day a small amount of his normal food is substituted by an equivalent amount of the new food. A few extra workdays later, the rate is raised for a period of one to two weeks until the food is finally made entirely from the new food.
In this way, the changes help the colon filamentous organisms to get used to the new food and reduce the risk of colics. When you are concerned about your horse, or if it has done so in the past when traveling to an exhibition, etc... If you are recommending a probiotics to help return to a healthy bowel condition, you should consult your veterinarian.
A few ponies are refusing to take peculiar amounts of running cold or drinking soda, and desiccation can cause clot. Use a tip from normal competition horse show jumpers and start adding sugars or Kool-Aid to your horse's waters a few days before the move, so that he won't know the differences when he comes to the new stable.
The move to a new stable offers you the ideal chance to enjoy your horse. Things will be new for him, so take the initiative to be with him while he is experiencing the new care area, the new washing stand, etc. He/she will be acquainted with your horse and will be able to suggest managerial skills that will guarantee a seamless transfer into the new area.
