Keeping two horses on small acreage - Tips & Ideas
I'll be officially retiring my current horse, as she is no longer rideable due to injury. My plan is to pick up a second horse that is and just keep my mare as a companion.
But, I am limited on space. About 1.5 acres. And it is all sand. I'll eventually be building two stalls just outside the pasture so I can stall them at feeding time/extreme weather. So they will be out about 22 hours a day on most days.
I always feed free choice hay. And they will be getting a half flake of T/A at feeding time. And because I am on sand, I bran/oil once a week.
What are other things I can do to make this manageable?
