Well, I am probably getting a horse this next month, if he passes the vet check..
Anyways, the previous horse we owned, we boarded her, and they fed her.. so I know barely nothing about feeding horses..
The horse I'm looking at.. is 16.1hh, BIG wb/draft/qh? His breed is unknown.
In the summer/spring, he would have access to an acre of pasture. He would be worked at least 4 days a week.
In the fall/winter, he would be kept in a small paddock. Let out on the pasture, to run around in the snow, for a couple hours a day. He would get worked at least 3 days a week.
Anyways, what sort of food should I feed him?
Alfalfa hay, grass hay, timothy grass hay, mixture?
Is it necessary to feed pellets and grain?
Tell me everything there is to know about feeding horses! thanks!
