Thanks so much everyone!1 it has been one of the most rewarding experiances working with these horses.
Yea Silver Fern is gorgeous to, actually is probaby far more eye catching than the boy, she jus arrived in slightly better condition than he did.
Um hard feed is like, grain, pelleted, extruded feed, basically if you buy it in a sack and its not chaff, i would call it hard feed...or thats what we call it in my neck of thw woods anyway..like sweetfeed, or oats or the like
i used a premixed feed that had some minrals and vitamens in it, as well as quite a high oil content,small amounts twice a day, but mostly just hay and grass, as it took them a very long time to even nibble at their feed, they thought it was disgusting rubbish, they did eat lucernce chaff though and this was how i got food into them to begin with. They still lok at me funny if i offer them a carrot or apple..
