My dad finally granted me permission to get a riding horse! I have an 8-year-old Mini Horse mare, Spirit, and a really old mare, Annie, but she's my grandpa's horse and doesn't live with us, so she's not really involved. I just have to pay for the horse and feed, which ain't a problem. I've saved the money and have a job to pay for feed.
But before I make this decision, I've been told によって a couple people that when 馬 get together, they look for every chance at escape and one their out, there's no catching em. These people spoke from experience. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?
Plus, how should I introduce the horses? How much land is needed (I have anywhere from 1.5 to 2 acres avaliable)? And should I get a gelding または mare? Any other tips are welcome. Thanks!
