Answer
I'll tell you what would happen if you made your horse stand for 21 days...it would probably die and I would come over there and tie you to a log and sink you in a river!!!!!!! NO!!!!!! Do not tie your horse up for 24hrs!!!!!! I very seldom get angry on this site...bu...your friend is an idiot and should not be allowed around a horse!!!!!!
