well Joe, as nice as that would be, I live in an area where my horse cannot be on 24/7 turn out. Although, as I stated above, he is in full training, and thus gets plenty of exercise. Also, one of the big reasons I chose to do free choice with the Bermuda hay, was because I was under the impression that it had pretty low nutritional value. I wanted him to be able to eat and chew like a normal horse would on pasture, but without so much concern for high energy and obesity.
Anyway the free choice hay thing has been a relatively new decision. I will just keep an eye on him, and see how it goes for a while until he gets more used to the whole idea!
Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.
