Those horses would get what I gave them or get awful hungry. A healthy horse isnt going to starve themselves with hay right in front of them. They'll eat wooden fence posts and trees if they get hungry enough. As long as the hay isnt contaminated with something toxic or dangerous put it out there and leave it.

If I bring in hay from a different source my horses don't eat it as well. It's kind of like they are suspicious of the change but they get hungry enough and dig in.

Last few years I've gone through a couple hay dealers because the best price and quality seems to come from older farmers and then they retire and break my heart and the search begins again. Currently I'm getting square bales from a man who is 97 or 98 years old. Not sure if his near 80 year old son will continue when he is gone. My round bales are coming from somebody how is in his late 60's. So the search will probably continue once again soon.
