    Hay.....

    The person who said that about hay might have been thinking of straw. If you don't know much about agriculture it's easy to be confused about hay and straw (I say that because as a kid I did not know the difference). :roll:

    My horses live on hay and about 3 handfulls of grain a day (only in the winter period). And they are fine.

    We have our hay tested for protien levels etc. We don't feed our horses any grain however they have free choice minerals. So yes, horses can live off of hay alone (as long as it's good quality)
