    1 - 2 cups oats once a day; about 1/2 bale of hay daily, more if she eat is absolutely all up, less if she leaves some. In the winter, that's upped to a full bale and when the grazing is up to par, no hay at all. Water, salt and Hoffman's minerals all free choice. She's a really easy keeper. The oats are really just for a routine so she has to come in to the barn at least once a day and get checked over. She doesn't need them.

    My horse and donkeys are on free choice round bale of grass hay in a slow feeder net and/or pasture 24/7 with a mineral salt block.

    The horse gets for Am feed: 6 oz ration balancer (formulated for grass hay/pasture) 1oz hoof supplement, and 1 tablespoon whole flaxseed.
    PM feed: 3 to 4oz ration balancer.
    He doesn’t need a PM feed at all, but is spoiled and likes that one good mouthful of “feed.”

    My mare gets two scoops of Alfalfa Pellets, one scoop of Equistages Pellets, and two ounces of VitaFlex Joint Supplement... once daily, soaked.

    My gelding gets one scoop of Alfalfa Pellets... once daily, soaked.

    They're on pasture 24x7 and get free choice hay in the colder months. They also always have a salt-block available to them.

    Our horses get varying amounts of a pellet/sweet feed mix ranging from just a handful to 3lbs per feeding. They also get anywhere from 5-20 lbs of good quality hay per feeding. We feed anywhere from 7-9 am and anywhere from 5-8pm. Been doing it this way for almost 20 years and while it is not ideal in the slightest, it works for us for now. When my BF and I buy a house, sometime in the next year or so, I want them on pasture as much as possible.

    Eta. They also all have free choice access to salt blocks and fresh, clean water.

    Foal
    Kyler
    Free choice hay
    2 scoops of Purina Senior Feed w/ rice bran 3 times a day

    Baby
    Free choice hay
    2 scoops of Purina Omolene 500 w/ enrich 32 2 times a day

    Then the rest of the horses, who aren't being ridden very often are on pasture 24/7 and hay with Purina Omolene 200 at night.

    Kyler is the only running barrel horse and is 18 years old, what he is getting keeps the weight on him real well. Then Baby is a coming 3 year old that is being started on barrels and that food has kept the weight on her so good with her growing and the training.

    We feed only Purina feeds and love their feeds. All my horses do great on them. Would recommend any of their products to everyone.

    Depends on the season and the pasture. This is my first summer with two horses on my 2.5 acres of pasture, they have been on it since March 24/7 with some sporadic grazing in February, and I expect it will die in September or October. Casey gets a grazing muzzle on from 8 am to 9 pm. Candy gets 2.5 lbs of shredded beet pulp (4 qts), 2 lbs (1 qt) of Rice Bran, and 1 oz of Dynamite Miracle Clay and when it arrives she will get Fastrack Probiotics. I am experimenting with her to gain weight. When they were oj a dry lot they each got around 25 lbs of grass hay in small mesh hay nets and Candy got 4 lbs of alfalfa as well as her beet pulp and rice bran.
