Just a wondering really. I'm looking for a loan horse and will need him/her to live out 24/7, with either a field shelter or a nice high hedge to shelter under.
My old full TB lived out probably 85% of the time and was very happy (in fact he disliked being in and would whinny when you brought his turnout rug!), he only really came in if my sister brought her mare in because he wouldn't stay out alone. So I figure that if he can as a full TB (of 24 years) then most others will be OK too.
I've only phoned a couple of adverts so far and the owners are generally reluctant over the living out 24/7 thing. I'm not searching for a full TB, just a nice hack +/- a bit of low level dressage, so breed/type doesn't really matter.
So who's horses live out and what types are they? I'm starting to worry that no one will loan me their horse to live in a good old fashioned, and let's face it, totally natural, field.
