Probably the biggest thing is that I moved Nina to a hunter/jumper barn with real turnout...real pasture...small herd...in at night.
I took some students to schooling shows at a small hunter/jumper barn last spring. It was an old, rundown barn with nice well established pastures that had recently been taken over by a trainer new to the area who was fixing it up a little at a time.
I had it in the back of my mind as a possible place for Nina, but I wanted to see how it progressed before I leaped in. Shortly after my last posting I reserved a stall for her and moved her in mid November.
I am a big believer in turnout for horses, and not dry lot or single turnout, but real turnout with pasture to graze and other horses to socialize with. There are risks involved, but the benefits well outweigh the risks, in my opinion.
So I moved her.....more later.
