My mare used to live out all year round and the horses were fed hay in the field to share and she had her dinner. As she has got older, she doesn't eat as quickly as the others so it concerned me that she wasn't getting her fair share. I also found she was losing more weight than I liked over the winter. So now she lives out in the summer, comes in during the winter but only at night time. This has solved all my problems really, she gets plenty of time on grass and she is inside overnight to give her a rest from the horrible weather. I can also monitor what she eats so I can adjust her feed to suit any weight loss and she can take as much time as she needs.
