    I guess the only sensible thing to do is to ask the vet. I get all kinds of answers, and of the negative (do NOT feed it) has yet to be explained to me. I will let you all know if I find out anything.

    Ok, how long would it take a horse to walk around and graze as much grass as you cut in a relatively short amount of time?
    That's why you should worry about colic.
    Also it's pretty chewed up from the mower, in globs, that they cAn get in big mouthfuls. Hence choking.

    We will aim the blower towards the fenceline so ours can get a fine spray scattered on the ground, but the grass is cut often and short so its really not much more than a treat.

    Why don't you guys compost it and grow them some apples or carrots?

    I was actually leaning towards mixing it in with their hay in a hay bag so they can't gulp it down. I am looking into the composting thing though...but just wondering about feeding it...ultimately, I would LOVE to be able to fence our entire property so they can just graze all of it...but I just cannot afford that now.
