Some tell me I need to put bales out to keep them busy but is that really necessary? Wont that just make them fat???
Depends on the horse. I have one mare right now who is on 24/7 hay because we want weight back on her, but my other girl would blow up faster than I could work the spare weight off of her
I prefer throwing hay out in portions anyways, less waste that way. If you want to keep them busy, get hay nets with small holes so they have to spend longer eating what you give
