Why does a horse always look mean lol? I have always noticed they seem to look mean most of the time. I guess its just those big dark eyes and such. I noticed since had him a few days now, when I get the feed bucket, he knows what time it is. He comes to the gate, follows me to th entrance, and is like impatient lol. Are all horses like that? I am firm with him and will work with him on not doing that , trying to get him to be patient and wait. I mean he isnt forceful and trying to run me over or anything but I guess he wants it really bad lol. Just wondering what you guys do , if its something you can break and easiest way to go about it.
I have a 3 pint scooper I bought from TSC and the guy I got her from says he gives him that full , twice a day. I let him graze from time I get home about 4pm to about 8pm then put him back in stable yard and feed him grain and hay. Hay stays in his tray all day. When I get the electric fence up, he will graze all day till before nite then go back in stable yard. I feed him in the mornings before I leave home at bout 7am also to point out. So is the 3 pint scooper , twice a day enough or is it more of a personal preference?
He turned over the feed bucket this morning, not sure if he accidently did or not. My back was turned and I did go back over there and stood back upright and he preceded to eat out of it.
