We have been busy readying pastures for the horses. As I have mentioned before, the mares were very destructive this past winter, chewing fence posts down to the ground. It took awhile to get that area of fencing back up, but now all is done.
Horses need to be eased onto grass in an attempt to keep them from founder and colic. Spring grass is lush and holds a lot of starch which many horses are not able to metabolize. They are almost ready to go out for the whole day, making all of us happy.
