I also meant to tell you sooner, be sure if he likes goats or not. I once had a horse who hated goats. (no idea why) but he’d really go after any goat that got close enough for him to bite.

On April 2, 2012 at 8:41 pm Log in to Reply Suekov says: He’s lovely. Please, please don’t leave the halter on him when not attended. Horses scratch their face with their hind foot and it’s not all that uncommon to get a hoof, with or without a shoe caught in the halter. If it were a leather halter it would break but a nylon halter will not. The horse will struggle and likely die trying to free himself. I would hate for Morgan to go to the barn in the morning to find her new best friend dead in the pasture or stall. I’m 65 years old, had horses since I was 3 so I know of which I speak. I still ride an Arabian mare and plan to continue till I can’t crawl up there anymore. I hope Morgan is as lucky.

I would suggest that Morgan not actually sleep IN the stall. Besides the risk of being stepped on, horses do poop and pee, frequently. Trust me when I say that’s not a happy making experience. However, an opened bail of straw laid out in front of his stall door makes a very nice base for a sleeping bag, especially if you tuck a sturdy sheet or blanket over top of it to control the poky bits.

On April 2, 2012 at 9:06 pm Log in to Reply annag says: Congrats; I was also going to say – please do not leave the halter on him when he is not attended and grazing etc. It’s dangerous as Suekov has already stated. Especially a nylon halter as these don’t tear/break like a leather one will/would – regardless it’s bad horsemanship to leave it on all the time. Also glad to hear she’s getting a helmet!

I think it is wonderful that you’ve been afforded the opportunity to own a horse/ride as there is nothing like it. I am REALLY glad that you’re getting a horse too Suzanne. You will love riding your range!! On April 2, 2012 at 10:10 pm Log in to Reply liz2 says: Beautiful girl & her handsome horse. On April 2, 2012 at 10:12 pm Log in to Reply mnmom24 says: Hi, Congrats on the horse, have fun and be safe. I want to second the idea of taking off that halter!! I have had to cut one off a horse while it was thrashing about with its foot stuck in the halter. It was a friends horse and she did not believe me that it could cause trouble. Luckily we were there and able to free it, or she would have had a dead horse. mnmom24 On April 2, 2012 at 10:19 pm Log in to Reply Suzanne McMinn says: Yes, we took off the halter, please don’t worry. He JUST GOT HERE in this photo. He had been loaded and unloaded from a trailer. He came with this halter. (Though I do think it’s a cute halter! Love the polka dots.)

Maybe they are both very lucky indeed! :happyflower: On April 3, 2012 at 10:08 am Log in to Reply beforethedawn says: Welcome home Patriot!
