Exactly. I grind them fresh for every meal, others give them whole. I can't.....birds have a feast with the poop and I'm having a hard time picking it up then lol
Once ground it goes rancid quickly, but keeps well in the fridge or you can make a bigger batch and portion it and freeze it. Little electric coffeegrinder works well.

Hmmmmm...whole might be best for us for now. I don't want the BO to have to do too much extra for him, since she has thirty-plus horses on the property and pretty much does everything herself (with a little help from her husband when he's not working), including cleaning stalls and doing turnout.

You can help by bringing it ground when you go to the barn and when not, BO can give it hole. So best would be evening feed then so you don't double up.

Regarding the original question, Snickers grew into his head just before turning 7. He was sometimes called "Hammerhead" before that.
