I have multiple horses. The questions appear to be more relevant to single horse owners.

Hmmm... ok. Let me try to re-word it for multiple horses. I was going to modify the questions anyways as I've done about 10 so far and there are some that aren't very useful.

The basic jist of what I'm looking for is what do you feed your horses? Grain/hay/supplements. What is in the grain/supplements that is making you feed them? Where did you get the info that your horses need whatever is in the grain/supplements? That's the general idea.

Will you be at Out West tonight? Soda & I will be there, I'm excited! We won't be great but it should be a really good time!
