It has recently come to my attention that my horses might do better in the pasture than in the current paddock with high tensile wire that they play like a cello (hehe). So I decided to make a list of pros and cons for pasture board and share it with my friends here. Tell me what you think I should do in the comments.
More horses to socialize with
Cheaper (100 bucks/month)
No evening chores
Grass/Round Bale I don’t have to buy
Farther away from tack (like 300 feet)
Realistically, no daily eye check
I will have less extra spending money from working at the barn(this one is kind of complicated… but true)
Feeding routine is really good right now, I would worry about Gracie losing weight (maybe needlessly, should be fed the same thing in same amount).
No shelter (not that we have one now, but a new paddock should be built over spring break… which will have a shelter)
I feel like I have forgotten a few. And my cons list is definitely very wordy. Bonus video of Jellybean and Gracie reuniting after the rodeo trip:
