Then extremely limited grass, and as saddlebag said, the night grass is weaker than day grass, and so if you can put him out at night and in at day that is indeed the best.

I would be inclined to stay off any kind of painkilling supplement that is got prescribed by the vet. Partly because you don't know how it's going to effect his metabolism, partly because you need to know whether he is in pain or not.

Good luck with him. Follow the vet's advice to the letter, and phone him up to ask for more if you are unsure.
The vet was there and said the supplement stuff would be fine to give him. And I am following his advice to the tee =)

I can't change it. I have to do whats easier for the BO cause she's helping me. Its easier for my put him up cause then I can feed him and clean the stall for him. Plus the both the Vet and the Farrier said as long as he has the muzzle he sould be fine for that amount of turn out.
