Idle hooves really are the devil's workshop! My boy has begun playing with his feeder He has ripped it off the wall twice and is finding new ways to be destructive with it all the time. The worst part, is that the barn is about 90 ft. From my bedroom window, and I lay awake at night thinking evil thoughts about my boy while listening to him banging away at his feeder.
I already feed him out of a slow feed net, it does help, but when it goes empty he starts in destroying things. I can't afford to feed free choice and he gets morbidly obese if I over-feed too often. During the day he's not so bad because he plays with the other horses, but at night everyone eats separately and are penned separately so the minis don't hog all of the food.
Any Ideas on how to keep my horse entertained at night will be greatly appreciated! Inexpensive ideas will be appreciated even more.
