My guys are all appalossas. Range from 2-9ish. Their work level right now is not very much at all.

I use the straw as roughage, if Im control feeding.. so they have something to chew on all the time. Fork off your round hay bales and give beetpulp, if you are giving a small amout of hay you can probly add alfalfa pellets..they are very rich , so you would only give one cup per horse if that for protien...Beet pulp will also help maintain the weight in the horses and it's cheap...Act like your hay is the only hay on the planet and save as much as you can, so you don't run out.
