This is my first winter owning a horse. Berdi is a 19 year old QH and is a very easy keeper. I have to keep a muzzle on all day and stall her at night in the summer and even then she is plenty big! So, this is not like feeding a hard keeper TB. She basically could get fat on air!
Tell me what you think of this feeding plan. Berdi will be stalled from around 4-6pm till 7-8am in the winter. In the day she will be out in the field (its huge) with the llama. There is tons of grass under the snow. She could dig for food during the day and at night I would give her 10 pounds of hay as well as 2-3 pounds of oats and 1 cup sunflower seeds. Of course she would have fresh water and a salt lick too. How does that sound? I know that just eating grass under the snow will not provide enough nutrients but it she has that in the day and hay and oats at night, will she be fine?
Thanks in advance!
