Let’s take a minute and just watch this cute foal almost jumping up in joy when he first goes outside in the fresh air. I think the wide space and the sun were very good for him and his health. The first few days of a horse’s life set the stage for his future health, as his early growth and development prepares him for the world outside the womb. But with vigilance and care, you can help and make sure that he’s getting the best possible start in life.

The best time to start managing your foal is as quickly as he’s born. And you could take him out of doors 24 hours after he’s born. He may be became out with its dam in a easy secure pasture if the climate is right and it has bonded with the mare. Assuming the foal is healthy, exercising and sunshine are the fine matters for it.

Sometimes it’s good to even let the foal/horse outside overnight. Turning out early withinside the day or past due withinside the nighttime and leaving out in a single day lets in the horses to experience their turnout time unfastened from stamping, sweating, and hiding withinside the run-in shed (if available). They are capable of get the grass and exercising they need.

Also, the steady deliver of clean air allows save you dirt and small debris from entering into the lungs and inflicting irritation. Living inside means fewer chances for horses to stretch their legs. So, daily turnout becomes even more important. Exercise helps keep horses’ digestive systems functioning properly, their joints and muscles mobile, and their minds active. Even a nice walk on the trail will be beneficial.

As long as a horse is not shivering, has hay, water, shelter, and is in good body condition, outdoor living is perfectly fine. But if your horse lives in a stall, be sure to provide a chance to exercise and stretch, along with plenty of fresh air!
