Advice needed here for permanently relocating my two horses from Central Kentucky to the Edmonton, Alberta area. I'm mainly concerned about them acclimatizing to the Weather. It is MUCH colder and drier in Alberta. My Mare is a 5 yr. old KY Mountain Horse/National Show Horse Cross, and my Gelding is a 5 yr. old Tennesee Walker. They currently run free with a herd of about 30 other horses here in Central KY, and they are outside all the time. Our winters here are pretty mild, and they are never blanketed. I believe that keeping them outside makes them happier and keeps them healthier, generally speaking. I am wondering if anyone out there has had any experience moving horses from a warm/mild climate to a very cold climate, and if you have any advice for how to go about this so as to make it as stress-free as possible for all of us. THANK YOU so much for your help...
