My horse smells his own manure all the time and has lipped at it, are you sure he's actually eating it?
Rabbits and guinea pigs are hindgut fermenters just like horses, and it is normal and healthy for them to eat their feces! They actually get quite ill if they don't.
He was half-heartedly nibbleing his half-frozen poop(its cold here).
But, he WAS biteing off tiny amounts and chewing them(YUCK). He never does that when he has hay to eat. Maybe I should just increase the amount of hay I feed him?
