Moving from heated barn to...not heated. Any concerns for horse?
Well, after 5 months of searching, I have found a new barn that seems to be pretty darn close to perfect. I am beyond excited to move, as things haven't been going so well where I am now.
The place I'm at currently is insulated, and has a heated indoor, so pony has been clipped. There also has been no turnout for the past 2 months (don't get me started) other than in the arena, so he's a bit "climatized" to the warmth (and standing around):rolleyes:
My guy is in his heavy blankie now, but I am worried about him adjusting when we move. It's going to be a lot colder in the barn, and he will actually be outside all day :eek: LOL! I don't want him to be uncomfortable or cold, so is there anything I need to do? Put more blankets on? Short turn out to start?
The new BO is aware of the situation, and will be feeding extra hay inside and out, and will be monitoring him to make sure he's doing OK. I think he'll be too happy to be cold! :lol::lol:
No flames please, I am aware of the situation at current barn, and am not happy. I know it's taken me a long time to move, but I can't afford $600+ per month for board, which limits my options.
