A Week of Peace
It's been a good week at KCRC. I've been going twice a day to care for my mare. Once I get the slow feeder built it should only be once a day like a lot of the other boarders do. I will feel better with a slow feeder too since I know she'll have more time devoted to chewing. I have a couple toys on order as well. She seems pretty content and I'm sure she'll be more content as other horses move into the stalls next to hers. She has a decent amount of room even though I wish she was in a paddock at least but Laurie kept her colt Eksodus in the round pen (he was stalled with the others in bad weather) when he was still intact and couldn't be with the mares. He seemed to be fine but I'm not sure how much exercise she gave him, it may be something to inquire about to make sure I keep my girl happy. I'm getting out to play with Dani often and to let her run in the arena. I also let her out in the "common" area as I'll call it when I'm working on her stall.
