Small acreage I found that horses tend to get bored.so they like to eat. Its a great filler . Just plan on it growing the next spring..lol..
montcowboy, I have fed straw and either a liquid supplement or protein blocks to cows so I was wondering if it would work with horses. With of course feeding with a good hay a couple times a day and maybe a ration balancer.
I know what you mean about it shooting up in the spring, one winter I fed wheat/pea hay and it came up everywhere! LOL
