Thank you, I'll do that. :)

Everything can be achieved through patience!

I'd rather have a problem horse than a problem man. The horse I can work with. The man---I cannot help!

Good point, Solon. Also if you have a local University there that deals with agriculture, they are a great resource as well.... most o fhtem are up to date on the new and improved nutrition !

We have our hay tested regularly, so we know what and how much is in our hay. We stick with ONE provider and know how they fertilize, bale, etc.

Yes, free choice means the horse has the choice to eat it or not. We don't keep a bale in the pasture like some do, but I have it available in their stalls if they so choose to come in and eat it. Some of them like to come in out of the heat (I'm in Texas) an nibble a bit...

I am owned by:
Reign- 6 yo Rocky Mountain gelding and Turista- 6 yo Paso Fino gelding...the loves of my life!

Some friends of our family also do that. They have three or four bundles of hay hanging outside the barn under a large overhang that gives them extra shade. Thanks everyone for the advice! I'm beginning to find out that feeding one standard-size horse is not the same as feeding two minis!
