Any one ever grazed a mini with cows?

Hi, has anyone ever grazed minis in with cows? the farm i live on has three large fields of which have some cows grazing. I have been trying to work round them by only putting my mini in the field the cows are not in at the time, so if they are all in field number one i put him in field number three. As they are not my fields i cannot close any of the gates and have to constantly keep an eye on where the cows are. Has any one any advice or knowledge about this issue they could give me?

If you are feeding for maintenance, then a total roughage diet will suit your horse just fine. Good quality pasture, with supplementary hay when the pasture dries up, used in combination with a vitamin and mineral balancer supplement (e.g. EQUIVIT Gold Pellet at 25-50g/day, or EQUIVIT Nutrequin at 10-20g/day) will keep your mini in tiptop condition throughout the year.

If your grass is quite rich, and especially as new spring growth comes in, you will likely need to restrict grazing to prevent the risk of laminitis and founder. This can be done either by housing your mini in a yard or stall for a period of time each day (in extreme cases all day or all night) with access to hay, by using a restrictive muzzle (if you can find one small enough!) or by partitioning the pasture into small sections to be grazed in rotation.

Hi Tracy,
I use the clicker a lot for every new behavior. It's the most precise way to train a behavior. After I know the behavior is well learned and is on cue (something that isn't taught in the first CD) then I slowly begin to vary when I click. For example I only click on one where I can see the horse is trying a bit more. I also use a "tongue click" a lot after a behavior is learned. I've also trained them that a scratch means good job, but you've got to teach them that and not just assume they'll like it as much as the treat.

Learning how to vary your clicks and treats is a great thing to learn. Check out Karen Pryor's site for some free articles on it.
Keep me posted!

I'll bet you would have a blast clicker training your ferrets!

Hey Tracy
I used the clicker extensively to train my guys to both voice commands and rope/rein cues. I've even trained lead changes and picking up leads with the clicker. I'd love to see you investigate those options while you're considering training your mini... :)
