And still try to consider their preferences: lodge friends in the neighboring stalls and let out them in Levada or on a pasture together. If in the neighboring stalls there are conflicting horses, it is fraught with a chronic stress.
  9. it is better to place the Feeding trough so that at meal time the horse had an opportunity to see what occurs around. It is worth feeding a horse from a floor – such position natural to a horse and it is optimum in terms of physiology.
