Round vs square bales and how many?
I have one horse that will be in about an acre pasture. We're fencing it now and the grass in nice and thick but of course that only lasts so long lol. My question is, with only one horse, occasionally 2 when we move horses around, should I go with round bales or square? I am concerned that he won't be able to get through a round bale before it starts to get icky. I would purchase a round bale feeder if that's what I choose. If I do go with round bales, how many for a year? I've always been told that a horse averages roughly 100 square bales a year, do you think that's accurate?
