This winter I will need 100 bales for my 2 could be 3 horses.
Currently I have a 19 year old mare and 3 year old gelding.
My mare is not in work. She is fed 5-6 pounds of Nutrena Safe Choice, 1/2-1 pound of Triple Crown 30%, and 1/2 cup of flax seed oil per day. Along with her smartpaks.
My gelding is in VERY light work and just gets a small sprinkle of Nutrena Safe Choice and Triple Crown 30%.
Candy (mare) has a super sensitive stomach and is a hard keeper. Moe (gelding) can eat pretty much anything.
My question is...Which type of hay should I feed? Timothy, Orchard, Alfalfa, or mix??
My supplier has everything. Last year I had an inconsistent supply so some where Orchard, some where timothy, and the others were mix. I couldn't really tell which one they did the best on.
Ohh and both horses have excellent teeth. And I am aware of the price difference in types of hay.
