Scroll down to:
"Horse of Kings New Online Magazine is here" and click on it.

It's utterly amazing and beautiful. You can read the beginning of articles without subscribing, including enjoying a video about two Friesian Stallions that live together, and why.

My friend Paul has an article in this edition, and will have more in future editions, including how to get the the horse to relax the poll (ramener) at liberty.

I'm so proud of him. Honest. He doesn't do things exactly as I do, but he is doing a fantastic job of teaching people that there is more to working with horses than the traditional model. He promotes creativity and fun in horse training, and he focuses on collection with his unique approaches to it (again, games, fun and liberty work).

At any rate, the magazine is worth looking at. They are doing a wonderful job.

This is really beautiful, and so elegantly designed :) I love the story about Friesian stallions living together in a forest! It must be a paradise.

I think it was the one but last episode?

She has used that in order to showcase the new lay-out of the magazine, so I think you can only read it now if you click on the link to the new magazine lay-out.
I read the article in that style about a month ago, and what a wonderful pictures and stories!
I also thought it was quite interesting when the author wrote that when she first started with her 3 Frisian stallions, she thought 5 acres was enough for them, but then enlarged their pasture to 10 acres, and now feels that they would really need 20 in order to be really satisfied. :shock:
We keep Blacky and Sjors in a 200 m2 paddock and a 4000 m2 pasture when they are allowed to eat grass... :oops:

Don't feel :blush: Miriam

I think you already have a lot of space for your 2 ponys.
I know horses who don't even have that kind of space. I have seen someon that has about 2500m2 - 3000m2 for 2 horses...
