We've never had colic issues, boredom issues, ulcer issues. Nothing. They sometimes go up to 6-7 hours without hay on days they are piglets and scarf it up, they do just fine.
Thanks kassierae. I think I'll put up a temporary electric fence so My horses can eat some grass for fun.
There is another problem though-mud. What should I do about it? There is alot of mud when it rains and when the snow melts. Right now 1/3 of the paddock is mud and manure, 1/2 is under water(lots and lots of snow this year), and the rest is dry.
What should I do?
