You need to weigh your hay and offer each 20lbs to start with, preferably in numerous piles spaced well apart. Sometimes horses we think of as hard keepers are oftentimes the horse that's been driven away from the hay. If you are tossing hay to 2 horses, put out 7 or 8 piles. If one is chasing the other off, which it will do if hungry, the chaser usually quits and settles down at the third pile. The remaining piles leave the hard keeper with a good selection.
