i recently moved my two horses to a new yard, where they share a field together, and the older of the two is starting to seem very low. He normally is very friendly and comes to investigate anything anyone is doing, and generally seems content, but recently he has lost all interest, and just stands in the corner of the field on his own, or at the back of his stable facing the wall.
I dont know if horses actually do get depressed, but i really want to cheer him up a bit. I go out into the field with both of the horses and play with them, and i have tried join up and other similar excerises with him. I also try to vary his routine, trying different things every time we ride so he doesnt get bored.
I was just wondering if anyone knew of anything i can do, there's all these toys that promise to cheer them up, many of which i can't afford.
would be greatful of any advice
