If you have to have a horse and you have to keep it in a stable, get a stallion – that’s my only equine advice.
And I will tell you why – stallions poo in one spot and that makes mucking out much easier.
Mind, it will be one big giant poo mountain but it is at least in one place and not scattered to the four walls which is what geldings like to do. Messy boys.
Walking into the stable this afternoon, I instantly knew that Taktur has spent his morning making a poo pile.
(That is Daisy’s competition horse, Kappi, in the photo eating his bucket of fresh air, just so you don’t get mixed up)
For eating purposes, we had parked Efstur and Taktur in the gelding’s stall and you can see the chaos. Mucky boys, geldings.
And here is Dreki Dragon all goodly eating and then he will all goodly lead nicely to the field because he is like his father, Taktur, and is a gentleman in the making.
Really, upon reflection, Taktur is possibly Piers Brosnan in horse form.
