Hello there. I bought my horse 6 months ago from an area 3 hrs north of where I am. I slowly changed his feed and hay (he was on all purpose feed and coastal). Well I am relocating my family, and my horse Cooper to North Carolina in 2 months. I have google'd this and can't find answers. Since you have to slowly switch feed and hay I need to know:
Since the grass that grows here in FL is completely different than NC grass, do I need to slowly get him used to the difference? How gradually should I do it? He is in a sand paddock right now but still gets time to graze here. Up there, we're going to be on 6 lushly grassed acres. Any suggestions? Anything i'm not thinking of as far as the big change goes? I have blankets for when it gets cold... any suggestions greatly appreciated.
