TheHorse.com had a question posed to it asking if any studies had been done to see why a horse may be happy in one barn but then become more upset, nervous or show un characteristic behaviour when at a different barn. While no studies are immediately known, they offer great things to consider based on some ideas and observations. One interesting note they made on "unhappy" horses that have been donated to their teaching behaviour herd has been "cured" with a turnout in their "E-field". Check out what that is and see the suggestions here!
Good news for us horse owners when Connecticut passed a law that was introduced by Governor Dannel Molloy stating that horses are not inherently dangerous. The bill introduced following a court ruling where a horse named Scuppy bit a 5-year-old boy while being held by the boy's father. Horse owners had shown great concern after the ruling because it had great potential to cause issues such as higher insurance cost to owners. The law would allow for a case by case review if issues arise and woud factor in past history of the horse. Read more info here about this new Connecticut law.
