Sounds like a stupid question.
I like my horses to have plenty of hay. They don't work hard, Simba is on the leadrein and Bandit gets ridden out a handful of times a month so I don't like to give them too much hard feed. I like the boys to have plenty of roughage and tend to give them plenty to keep them going into the night.
I get to the yard about 6pm every evening when I am finished work. I find it slightly odd that by 6pm none of the other horses will have any access to hay throughout the night. The old man who tips about makes comments about me giving my lads more hay and says they have enough during the day.
How do you all hay? Do you like them to be able to nibble away as they like? Or do you find it normal that a horse will go for approx 14 hours with no hay/feed? I'm only curious as I start to question the way I do things, when I see others doing it so differently.
