It is always small piles - takes them not more than 20 minutes to eat..
when I throw apples in the pasture, I throw them as far and wide as I can, and when each horse stops to eat I throw a few more to each one - the older one still needs to scare the younger one away - even though he is getting fat already..
I am not too worried - as the youngster still gains weight, but its just ridiculus and a bit damaging to the self confidence of the youngster he is way bigger than the older one, but gives in way too easy...

I have no idea what happens when or winter we put a round bale in the pasture for them to eat.. I might have to drag big piles away from it so both can eat calmly..
