Horse Adoption Part 2: The Transition Period
- By Tracy Gantz
- Sep 01, 2011
Any horse entering a new environment will go through a transitional period, which is magnified when that horse is an adopted animal. Maybe he suffered abuse, starvation, and neglect and needs a great deal of TLC. Perhaps he used to be a racehorse and now he not only is confronted with an unfamiliar environment but also has to learn a new job.
No matter the circumstances, when you adopt a horse you face a different and greater set of challenges than you would if you had purchased a “made” horse. This free report can help you along your new journey. Give your adoptee time to adjust to his new life and patiently teach him what he needs to know. In the end, you might find yourself bonding with this horse in a way you haven’t with any other animal.
