Gun Runner is preparing for his breeding season to begin in early February but at this time, he has a pretty regulated daily schedule. Rebecca Nicholson at Three Chimneys Farm provides an overview:
Gun Runner comes into his stall from 7:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. each day. He comes in each morning for several reasons. He gets his temperature taken, feet picked out, and is examined closely for any changes in his physical appearance or attitude. He is also fed, groomed and shown to prospective breeders during these hours. As you may have noticed, Gun Runner also LOVES his naps. When the stallions come inside they enjoy relaxing in the comfort of their stalls where they get a break from environmental conditions.
Gun Runner is taken out of his stall around 8:30 each morning to be groomed. Our stallions are shown frequently to breeders during the day, and we want them looking their best and brightest at all times. When Gun Runner leaves his stall during the late morning hours, he is typically being shown to prospective breeders. It is important for breeders to examine our stallions to make sure their conformation and physical attributes compliment that of their mare.
Around 1 p.m. he is turned out to his paddock and stays there overnight.
