Getting him to eat
I'm a bit annoyed with my gelding... He won't eat his feed! He tries to avoid it, won't look at it, won't take it out of my hand (and this is a horse who is a greedy little sucker... he almost takes my hand off any other time I feed him out of hand)... and goes over to my maresfeed pan and sees that she has the same thing and just stands there and looks depressed.
It's not really a problem, considering he's on pasture grass 24/7... but I want him to eat his grain! It's not that he's sick or anything, he just doesn't like corn and alfalfa... and that's all I have right now.
If I keep giving it to him, will he eventually eat it?
