Are the Spanish horses always boxed?
In some places they actually have paddocks for the stallions to come out, but in most places it’s not so. The following is not in agreement with how Andalusitano wants to keep horses but just an observation of how it might be. The land is so expensive here in the south of Spain so many yards simply don’t have the facility to keep paddocks. Or that the horses are being used for riding and show and by letting them out in the harsh sunlight with flies rugged terrain etc. they will not keep their beautiful manes and coats and they might harm themselves too. Another reason is that they are stallions and they might get more feisty if they get let out.
