What to feed horses?
Hi everyone. Well I'm hoping I will be able to have a few horse projects in the future, but i'd like to know everything I can before I even think about getting a horse. My main "issue" right now is feed.
I have read that you have to feed both hay and grain to a horse, but I'm not sure how much. Most likely, any horses I would have would be warmbloods/thoroughbreds or quarter horses/paints if this helps. How exactly do you feed? Hay and grain in the morning and at night but how much each time?
Also, how about if there are pastures.. how would I use that to my advantage, as in when would they go in/out, and if they still need the hay. I would probably bring them in for the night, and take them out in the morning until I come back in the afternoon.
Also, how do you buy your feed? Lets say I have 4 horses, how much hay do I purchase at once to last as long as possible? Also grain??
Thanks in advance!
