"It’s no surprise that an intelligent horse cooped up in a stall all day may begin to negatively act out. Buy your bored horse some toys! "


"Moving to a new location, quickly adding a new herdmate, or abruptly weaning a foal from its mother could all cause lasting effects on a horse’s well-being.  "


"Like other stereotypic behaviors, weaving isn’t “curable”, per se. However, the weaving might disappear as suddenly as it arrived once he settles down. "
