Does your horse prefer grazing in the winter?
I have two horses...a domestic gelding and a mustang mare. I offer quality hay in two different locations as well as their feed and alfalfa as a supplement to the hay. My gelding would prefer to graze little and hang out with the hay. My mare prefers to spend most her time grazing instead of with her hay.
Now, is it something to do with her being a mustang that would explain why she will do this? She loves her feed and alfalfa....she does eat the hay decently. Both horses are in good body weight.
The grazing is not too great right now as all the grass in basically dead. Plus there is a nice layer of snow and ice. Any ideas?
