    Slowfeeder haynets, definitely. Not the normal ones. Put their portions in them, they'll be busy all day long, won't overeat. I hang mine on fenceposts. Spread out, so they have to move. One for each horse. You can use them in the stalls, too. Much less hay gets wasted.

    Thank you so much for the advice on the hay nets. I will go at lunch and pick some up. That way it will keep them busy during the day. I appreciate the help!

    Here I was worried I was doing something wrong and it sounds like I have been doing ok :)

    As for the pasture...Should I worry about the pasture being eaten down or is that normal for the winter time? Its still green its just short short.

    Thanks again!

    Yep, when the horses have to be stalled because of bad weather, they get hay nets as well. My one gelding will grind his into his bedding and then poop on it if I don't use a net. Pretty obvious he's not starving if he does that!

    Pasture doesn't grow very much in the winter anyway, so it's going to be eaten down to nubbins. Where in VA are you located? I'm in south central, east of Lynchburg.

    Speed Racer....

    Is this what you are suggesting? If so do they last a while or should I order a couple as a spare? Thanks!

    That's it ( I'll just answer for her, since we're saying the same things anyway
    I'd say one each for outside and inside and a spare each, so you're not stuck without one.
    I made mine out of baling twine. Not as pretty, but they're still holding up
