I bought him from out of State, two hours away. Her hay was not the good quality mine is. She fed a different brand of grianand much more than I do. By this time, you would think that he would have gotten used to my hay and grain. I have pasture, she had a mud lot. Although the grass in my field is basically dead right now, he still prefers eating it rather than eating hay. He is out on pasture no more than 3 hours a day. For the first month, I had him out about fifteen minutes to a half an hour to get him used to the grass. He will go for weeks with normal poops, than all of a sudden it is loose. Thank you for responding, it helps to get input from other people. Have a wonderful day and again, thank you.
