After some days of flooding rain this winter I purchased my first ever (and sure to be last ) bale of hay.
The horses ate it happily the first time it was offered but aren't interested in it now.
They'll eat it from my hand, just, but they give the impression it's a bit of a chore if you know what I mean?
They'd prefer to be handgrazing up at the dam or out on a kerbside walk. I figure this means they are not hungry? At least not for hay?
Mine can be the same
Horses are selective grazers, even on pasture, so they probably are finding what they want, and prefer, in the pasture.
Pretty picture, by the way.
Would LOVE to see some kangaroos out there sharing the field with your 2
Any chance of any pictures of that??
Love all the input, please keep it coming.
