I'm taking a relook at my overall feeding plan just to make sure that I'm doing what's best for the two bubba's. Today, I'm sending out hay samples for analysis. Currently I using hay from two different sources, rounds bales from one farmer, squares from another. Both my horses could stand to loose some weight, they're heavy for two reasons, lack of activity and using a round bale, they're sure not heavy because they get too much feed. They hardly get any.
Most likely I'll switch to a ration balancer and will relook at their forage intake after I get the results. I want to gather a few more facts, talk to the vet and move forward in a way that provides them with adequate forage and meets their nutritional needs and not waste $$.
