Ok, so I just got my first Fjord last week. My friend's family owns one & I personally LOVE the breed so, pretty exciting for me
Anywhoo... I have one other horse, a 16-yr-old Arab who isn't what you'd call an easy keeper in the winter. I feed her atleast 25-30 pounds a day depending on the weather & about 20 pounds through the summer.
I'm just concerned how to feed them together now because Bella (the Fjord) is fat already & I know the breed are very easy keepers. My friend's parents actually keep their Fjord on less than 15 pounds a day, NO supplements, & he's still quite overweight.
If you own one, what are your feeding regimends?
We are planning on getting alfalfa cubes & oats for supplements this winter, but should Bella have any? She really doesn't need the calories...
Any opinions would be great!
