Default How long do horses take?

Well, Etta arrived on Wednesday. She seems to be settling in well but Audrey is beginning to regret her arrival.

She seems to spend about 4 hours a day mucking out the stable, collecting the droppings from the field, feeding them (Snowy and Etta) and changing Etta's rug. Then, on top of the 4 hours, there seem to be other jobs to do -- Snowy has to have his hoofs treated for white line disease; the muck heap needs moving; the tack room needs tidying; goodness knows what...and she hasn't had the time for a ride!

So she hasn't really managed any work for some days and is thinking that it would be better to give Etta to a retirement home.

Surely a horse and a donkey don't need to take so much time.

How much time do your horses take per day? Is it possible to have a horse and still lead a normal life?
