For your horse to remain healthy, safe, and well, you need to make sure that you provide the proper horse care that it requires. Domesticated horses require to be attended twice each day since they are kept in a generally restricted area and have no access to grazing. This beautiful and sensitive creature needs patience and commitment, so you can extend the care that it needs.

Horses instinctively submit to the discipline of a herd. It is also the same instinct that drives them to act. Because of that each member of the herd will behave for the survival of the whole group. Each would stand in guard and takes turn in sleeping and standing guard to make sure that the herd will be safe throughout their stay in a specific locality. A single leader of the herd gives the signal whenever there is danger and the herd acts in response to it.
Note also that domesticated horses can be easily startled, so if it will be your first time to be around horses, you must learn to be move quietly. Any unnecessary noise will automatically activate their flight reflexes. It may also cause injury to your horse, you, and even the people who might just be next to you and your horse. It is also necessary that you communicate with a gentle, soothing voice when you are grooming or fending your foal.
Groom Your Horse Thoroughly and Regularly.
Horses do not have the capability to groom themselves. Make sure that you have them groomed regularly to make them look, feel and smell pleasant all the time. The foal’s coat, mane, and tail should be kept free of any dirt, sweat, sand, dry leaves, twigs, and any other foreign object. Also, when cleaning your horse, make sure that every part of the horse, from the head to its feet, is cleaned thoroughly. You should use a horse grooming kit to make this easier (more…)
