Bermuda or prairie hay....not a problem. And of course I also feed them salt, 1 oz/twice a day or give them a salt block depending on if the horse likes the block or not.
oh that bringws up another question. My horses do not like a salt block. I bought a large one 6-7 months ago and not even half is gone between three horses. So can you give them regular table salt or is a special type of salt? Oh and it would just be a local hay (orchard,timothy mix)
