Apr 21st 2015 at 4:04 AM

Horses are pasture animals. These normal activities include grazing from more than 10 to15 hours in a day. Stabled horses feel boredom or hunger, if they do not graze for a long period time.These are a few problems, which can arise in hoses if they are stall for a long period of time.


Stabled horses  may start kicking when they feel hunger and boredom.  Horses that learn kicking can damage and destroy the stable  easily and quickly. One of the best ways  to control the behavior of kicking is to provide them Bermuda, alfalfa or timothy hay to keep them close to their natural state.
