Changing my horses hay feed??
so i am moving my horse next weekend to a new barn where the horses are free fed from a round bale :)
my horse currently is fed 2-2 1/2 leaves of a square bale 2x a day, along with around 2-4 lbs of grain (depending on her work load for the day:)
i will continue her on her grain schedule as normal, but i would like to know what the best way to go about having a smooth transition from her feeding arrangement now, to being free fed would be??
because i have a family relation to the new barn i am moving to, i could always just keep her on her square bale schedule, but it will just be alot of extra time and MONEY (because they grow and produce round bales, not square bales, so we would have to buy them)
as a side note, her pasture at the new barn will be open linked from the stall, so she can come and go as she pleases:) she will also be with one other mare!
