I thought you only give them in the winter to keep them warm and of course it fills them up.
In Winter horses need more Hay to help warm them internally. Not oats or grain of any sort provide the internal warmth that Hay provides.
I do and have grain fed my horses over the years along with free choice high quality Bermuda Grass hay. Our pasture has had very little good grass for the horses to graze on. I am down to one horse now and she is a 25y/o and in excellent flesh/condition. She gets 2 1/2 pounds of a custom mixed corn and pelleted feed morning and evening. Plus all the Hay she can eat.
