So my horses were on timothy orchard at the old barn and just grass in the summer, we've since moved them to a self care facility and since my old barn baled on us and decided to keep all of there round bales for there horses. We are now looking for a new hay supplier. I do have a few on hand but found a guy not too far from me who sells 5x5 timothy grass mixed round bales. Is that a good choice to feed throughout the winter? Whats the difference between timothy grass mix and just timothy orchard? My horses right now aren't getting any hay because they have an abundant pasture.
We have 3 horses in the pasture right now, one of which is harder to keep weight on in the winter (Tb) and the other is an air fern (qh ponyx)
also, for three horses how many round bales would you buy to last throughout the winter? I was estimating that each round bale would last 2 weeks for 3 horses. (just to be safe, I don't think they'll eat that much though but id rather be safe then sorry) we were thinking to get around 12 round bales and 30 squares for back up.
