I agree with that article...except I can't stand Uckele. I loved Triple Crown Low Starch feed!! Unfortunately it isn't sold where I moved to last May

You know what is a challenge is finding about any horse nutrition information taht is not promoting or funded by one company or another ... makes my research hours hard and long sometimes

It's interesting how it does say to feed unlimited hay...so I guess even if it makes a horse fat (like Sonny's case) it's healthy for his feet? I duno

Horses digestion is actually designed to have constant foragee but we all know that is not always feasible LOL or affordable ... I have an air fern and it stinks sometimes keeping her at the proper weight without her getting OBESE on me

Yeah same...Sonny is definitely overweight...someone thought he was pregnant (I call him my pregnant boy now ).
It is definitely healthier to have a horse eat 24/7 but yes, the cost is extremely high.

What I have done with mine is get a good low cal supplement and feed medicore hay and toss some good hay daily ... the yucky hay keeps them busy while I am providing nutrition elsewhere... as much as I hate round bales they are great for air ferns LOL .... keeps their gut moving while most of the sugars and stuff get washed away to a point anyway ... I have one mare that I add stuff to during the colder months because she doesn't do as well as my air ferns do ...

unless you have an obnoxious diva of a horse like me he eats on round bales for 2 days and then lets the rest sit and rot My horse's free choice hay is basically me going out there 4 to 5 times a day and throwing him a few flakes.

LOL I have one that away after 7 days while the other two clean it up... the air ferns will eat just about anything that isnt' too stemmy or moldy... I keep a close watch and when it gets to that point I pull a new one in ... they are such brats sometimes

I am out several times a day to check on mine as well and I am always looking at the windows at them to see what they are doing....LOL
