My mom keeps bugging me on this topic so I thought I might as well ask what you all thought.
Currently Sonny is on hay..he gets 8 flakes a day, I do have grain from him (Blue Seal I believe is the name), but he doesn't get it on a regular basis. He'll only get it after he does a good job when I'm working him. When he does get them, he'll get a scoop full of it...it's a coffee can..so I believe it's 16 oz. Maybe....not sure.
Anyways, should Sonny be on a regular graining schedual? He was just on hay before I bought him, and gets really hyper when he gets too much grain, but my mom thought it was healthier for him to get grained everyday.
I do have a brown mineral block out for him whenever he wants it. I don't know the quality of the hay the barn owner gets, but I do know that all of the barn owners horses survive fine on it.
Thanks in advance!
