3 Reasons Why You Should Part Stable All Year


1.  Routine

I always want to keep the same routine with my horses.  So because of this, part of my routine is taking my horses in and turning them out.  I mostly do this because I have a very hard horse to catch if he isn't in the routine of coming in every day.



2.  Part Grazing

I personally always like to keep grazing to around 12 hours a day.  I wouldn't recommend this if you live in a different country where grazing related illnesses aren't an issue but here in Scotland, we have to worry about grass sickness. 



3.  Changing weather

Another reason I do part stabling is that of the weather changes of each season.  So in the winter, it is cold and snowy so I like to take the horses in at night.  In the summer it gets hotter and the flies come out so I like to take them in during the day to avoid fly bites and sunburn.



My Yearly Schedule

The second half of Autumn, Winter to The First Half of spring - In during the night

The second half of Spring, summer and the first half of autumn - In during the day
