Hmm... New pasture = New feed?
Right now my horses are on dry lot with 24/7 access to a round bale and get grain 2x daily (high fat/low starch for their drafty-ness)... They only get 1lb/feeding each and are, well, round... Next week we are moving and will have pasture. Obviously I will be introducing them to it very slowly. Once they have been introduced to pasture, it will be for about 8-10 hours a day, then they will be in the paddack at night with hay. (The pasture is across the street with no shelter and I just don't feel comfortable keeping them over there at night) Obviously their nutritional needs are going to change. I was thinking about either switching to a ration balancer or finding a forage based feed to give them instead of hard grain... What are some ideas? What do you do? I just want to make sure they can keep getting their oil and if necassary an added supplement. They will also have 24/7 access to a salt/mineral block and water.
