I am preparing for at least 3 months box rest with Ben and wondered if anyone has got any tips? He is moving into a new stable on a different part of the yard where he will have company for most of the day, and at least 8 other horses at night. He can also see out to his normal turnout field. He will have a shavings bed with rubber matting. I plan to skip out in the mornings and then do a full muck out each evening. He will have hay 3 times a day and a small feed morning and evening. In the first 2 weeks he must not leave his stable at alI. I am not sure yet if he will have to be cross tied, I hope not. What can I do to keep him occupied? Obviously grooming and spending time with him. I don’t want to try a treat ball initially as he has to stay as still as possible. How an Earth do you keep a horse still and happy for 2 weeks?
