Grain alternatives for winter.
I have a very, very easy keeper who is about to move to a 24/7 pasture situation (with the option of a dry lot to control grass intake, especially in the spring!). I believe it's going to be much healthier for her, and I'm thrilled that I am finally going to be in a boarding situation where it will be available for her.
She will need no grain in the summer, but in the winter when the grass is dead, she will need something more than hay, even being blanketed I know. Last year she was on an oat/barley/corn mix that was just a blend of very foragey type stuff.
Thinking of using this again, because I would love to give her something to keep the weight nice, that is natural. But I would like to hear of any other options anyone knows and have successfully used!
