When I put hay out for my horse, she noses down into the feeder and will only eat the hay at the bottom, she tosses out the hay at the top, and the end result is 50% of the hay is all over the ground...and she will not eat it.... any thoughts on this????
My horse does the exact same thing. Although she does end up eating the rest of it, I believe. (There are two horses there, so it is not easy to tell.)
My horse has devoured a bale of hay, drilling a hole right through the center then practically convering it back up with the excess. It looked like a normal bale, and when I sat on top of it, I fell all the way in. XD I think it is just normal. Not every horse does it, but I've seen it before. Perhaps it is just a mare thing.
If she is not eating it, I'd suggest just piling it back up untill she does. Or keeping it in a place that keeps it composed even if she destroys it.
