I'm bringing the boy home Sunday morning! He has been pasture fed or on hay most of his life, with grain tossed in as a treat here and there.
I am wondering what I should start him on for feed. My goals are to improve his skin and coat, manage his weight properly, and to provide enough energy while we are training. He will be kept indoors (heated barn) over the winter, so the heat factor isn't as important. I've heard mention of an Omega Blend, and will most definitely be looking that up, and am also really interested in flaxseed. I am not 100% sure what the hay is, but I know it is an alfalfa blend.
Also, for his mental health, any ideas for stall toys and arena games to help relieve boredom? He is coming from an outdoor herd environment, so I don't want him to become depressed or sketchy from lack of stimulation. I am planning to work with him one way or another everyday, unless the weather is really bad (which will happen occasionally over the winter - gotta love Saskatchewan!). But even those days I'm sure my BO will pull him out and lunge him for me if I ask.
