Nursery of young horses
An animal-friendly amtosphere is the foundation for long, healthy physical and mental life of horse. . Therefore, the young horses at the LGKS in their first years of life are expected to do one thing above all: just be a horse. In the company of their conspecifics, they can move around freely in the fresh air all year long. After mares and stallions are separated, our growing young horses start live together with our guest horses in small socially acceptable groups. They spend a summer on the extensive herbaceous pastures at the LGKS. There one can browse, run and play according to one’s desire. By dealing with peers and older animals, they develop a healthy social behavior. The latter influence positively on the development of the partnership with the human later.
In winter, our young horses live in bright open stables, which have not only large lodging but also great outdoor areas. The basis for the winter feeding is the high-quality mountain meadow hay of our own production. In addition, our horses receive daily high quality mineral briquettes, which provide a valuable supplement, especially during the growth phase.
We provide our horses with the continual loving care from the professional support from an early age to the horse-rider cooperation with human. Foals and young horses do not work at the LGKS estate, but learn how to build the relationships full of trust and respect with those who raise them. Haltering, tethering, cleaning, leading all these shall be done even during only one visit of farrier for the regular hooves care or veterinarian.
