Chili's previous owners had her on pasture and round bales (free feeding) with 4 other horses in the field with 2 scoops of corn/grain/hay mixture a day (one in the morning/one at night).
My friend feeds her horse 2 flakes and one scoop of grain 2x's a day and that's what we have started for Chili. Is this too much of a change for her? She's being kept in a stall right now bc the "pasture" isn't much and there is alot of mud. My friend keeps her horse stalled bc she's had a horse almost break a leg in the mud and doesn't want him out in it. I agree. I'm going to be out there 1-2x's a day to feed/clean her stall and will be either lunging or lightly riding her in the round pen during the winter (except on really warm days, when I might take her for an actual ride), to make sure she doesn't get any fatter over the winter! Any ideas/suggestions??
