All three of my horses are super easy keepers, the only time we've had a problem with anyone getting skinny was when the big guy was bullying my sisters pony away from her food. My question is...
Round bales! Are they good or are they bad? We got three today, the ones that are all wrapped in plastic, and the guy that dropped them off said that lots of people feed them to their horses, but I'm still curious. When we opened up one of them it smelled super... sweet, and even though it smelled the same last time, we had five horses eating off of them so I wasn't as worried.
What are the big risks associated with round bales? We've only ever experienced colic once (and super mild colic at that) and I'm not as educated as I'd like to be about founder and all the other 'problems' associated with feeding and I'm just worried. We have two round bales out right now (because we don't want Heidi to be bullied away from her food again) and I would just like some more... answers?
My mom is convinced it's the way to go because it's convenient, but she's not the most nutrition savvy person either.
