    worried about feeding time this winter

    Currently all the horses (there are eight total) are on clover pasture. I take Gidget out to feed her her alfamo and probiotics so the other horses won't trample her or I.

    My concern is that I worry if my horse will get enough food. I know Stormy will as she tends to stand up for herself but Gidget is low man. The horses chase her and there are 4 dominant horses and Gidget will run away if they tell her to back off...I won't be feeding in the morning but my step dad will be. I don't know what to really do to ensure that my horse doesn't get skinny again. She's at the perfect weight of 934 lbs.

    I can't just have someone watch for an hour to make sure she gets to eat. It's an open pasture and most of the grass dies off in the winter.
