I know grazing helps blood flow throughout the legs and such. I spread out the hay a little so he has to move around to get it but I feel like I could do more, like he's not getting he adequate nutrients he deserves as a horse. He gets grain at noon and at bed time, and hay during the morning and night, and sometimes he gets an armful or two during the day when I go out there.
I don't know what else to do. Is he eating properly? Should I try and keep hay in front of him 24-7? It is winter, so It gets wet and moldy fast and since there are only two horses in his pen, they can't throw a round bale int here because it'll mold before they finish it, so I don't know what to do. My stable lets me feed my horse whenever I want and they feed him for me at night and each morning, and I'm careful that if I give him grain, I tell them not to grain him so doesn't run hot but I'm worried because he's not getting any grass! Of all the books I read they said that having your horse turned out to grass for multiple hours a day is the most important and healthy thing you can do for your horse. I'm stressing out now because there isn't any.
Any suggestions? Please and thanks.
