I have recently just acquired about 2 acres in Henley brook split into 6 paddocks . I only the have the one horse , who would be staying there. Problem is , he has bad separation anxiety . Currently where he is kept , he calls out and hoons when his mate isn't with him and if you try and take him away from his friend at dinner time , he will drag the lead rope out of your hands and bolt back to his friend . I'm worried if I move him to the new place , he is just going to stress and end up hurting himself from hooning . Not to mention ripping up my paddocks . I was thinking he would stress for the first few days then calm down . I was going to just leave him in his yard for the first day so he doesn't race around all day . Has anybody had success with paddocking horses alone ? Especially interested in horses that have separation anxiety also . He can't see any other horses but he could probably hear them , as across the road is a racing stable . Also getting another horse of my own isn't financially possible at the moment . I was thinking of getting him a companion pony , but I pay for all the paddocks based on how many horses are there (family friends property, that's why ). So that itself isn't really an option.
