California Style Barns, with large stalls, lovely well groomed large covered arena, a large outdoor arena and nice round pen. Horses graze in gelding only or mare only herds, on well kept large pastures, each complete with a round bale. AWS has easy access to 100's of miles of trails, while also being very close to town. Located just West of IAH, driving to AWS is relatively easy most times of the day. Horses at AWS are out days, in nights or out nights and in days, according to need. For the health and well being of current boarding horses, new boarders (horses), will have a comfortable 2 week quarantine onsite. No outside horses are ever allowed to visit. A very professionally run barn, the owner Les and stable foreman, Francisco, 'run a tight ship'. Tell Les or Francisco that Virginia Ellis sent you.
Here, in town, at Equestrian Venture's little city farm, my goal is to provide my 2 horses with husbandry and enrichment, in as natural an environment, as confinement in domesticated city life will allow. I believe our minimum pasture acreage, ideally should be 1½+ acre per horse. My two horses live out 24/7 on about 2½+ acres of modified Pasture Track, also known as a Paddock Paradise. Here, in our tropical Texas heat, I am very grateful to have a lot of shade, which also means that I have some grass, but not a lot of lush grass.* My pasture area is a long space, complete with varied and uneven terrain, natural obstacles to step over and divided areas to stroll into or around but not straight through. I forage feed grass hay and alfalfa Chaffhaye haylage. The goal is to keep them eating with their head down for tooth health and to encourage ample movement for more natural self trimming hoof care. They walk out to seek hay and walk back to seek water, many times throughout the day.
*Lush grass is not ideal. Check out https://www.safergrass.org/articles for some really valuable information about grass, IR and feet
Helping Dogs with their humans
WHY DOES BEHAVIOR HAPPEN?
Generally speaking, we and our animals behave because, either there is something in it for us/them, or we/they want to avoid an icky consequence.
We/they are usually moving toward something desirable or away from something undesirable.
