Just curious of a couple things. My husband and I own three horses, all of different ages (12 yr., 3 yr., 8 mth.), so the easiest safest way to keep them all healthy and up to weight is to feed them round bales all year round which they have all kept a healthy weight on so far. They are all worked and rode weekly and kept in shape. Anyways, we heard that a horse eating constantly will prevent them from stomach ulcers or any other food issues. The 8 month old gets grain as well but the other horses only get hay 24/7 with no grain. What is your thought on that? Healthy, or should a horse be getting more grain and supplements? They have a salt and mineral block outside as well.
Here are most recent pictures of them, do they look healthy weight from just hay, how they should look? Or do they look thin, to fat, sunken it, etc.? I only want the best for them and so far for the last two years this has seemed to be the "best option" but always open for suggestions.
