Arabian slow to graze after move..
I am new to this forumn and am looking forward to writing, reading and chatting with everyone.
I just moved my gelding to a new boarding facility just over a week ago. I brought a big bag of his feed with us so that he can gradually be introduced to the new, similar feed, however, it is the hay that he is turning down.
The hay is high quality tightly packed and smells great, however, even yesterday when I threw a flake outside for him, he barely picked at it.
I know that all changes take time and are adjustments. When we moves our mare a while back she didn't like the water and it took a while for her to adjust...just thought Hay would be different and in this cold weather, I want to make sure he eats enough and stays warm!
Thoughts would be appreciated.
