Sticking to a strict feeding schedule?
I couldn't tell if this has been covered in another post or not. How important is a really strict feeding schedule? i.e. is it harmful to the horse if they end up getting their feed at different times during the day?
Blaze gets free pasture grazing all day and munching on a round bale. I usually come out in the evening (6-7 pm) to give him his scoop of feed. However, on Thursday I'll be coming out early in the morning (8-9 am) and then on Friday I'll be out sometime in the afternoon. Is it bad to give him his feed whenever I'm out there? I ask because otherwise I have to pay extra for my BO to do it, or find another boarder who will be out there to do it for me.
