In the summer my horses are on pasture 24/7 and in the winter they have hay 24/7. We're lucky to ride 5-10 hours per week and during that time they think you're trying to starve them to death. My question is what were horses fed in the old west when they were really worked. There were no balers, no irrigation, no fertilizer, and no trucks to haul hay around. From the western movies it looks like there wasn't much natural grazing in the desert sw. My question might even apply to modern day ranch horses.
