    Adopting from the BLM soon and had some questions.....

    I'm going to be adopting my first horse...a wild mustang in the beginning of nov....He/She will be 18mths or younger, and I had some questions....
    I'm thinking about buying hay during the summer since that is when I've heard it's the most affordable, how much hay does the average horse eat during the winter season? And better yet, how long is hay 'good' for? I have plenty of room to store, I just don't want to waste money and buy more then my horse will ever be able to eat before it goes bad....

    I guess that's the only question I have as of this moment, but I'll probably be back later

    Hi Summer.
    you can never have too much hay!! It's best to have more then none at all, depending on what part of the states you are from and what type of hay you want to buy it can get exspensive, I find that in my area the alfafa molds way to fast and is a awaist of money (my horses hate it too) we use pm6 grass here and my horses can't get enough of it but I pay 70 $ a 1600 round bale..... will this mustang be in a barn at night and out to pasture the day?, how much grass does this area have?

    I heard that the average horse eats around 20lbs of food a day. 20 lbs including hay, grains and supplements. The hay is for the most part good for awhile, unless it gets wet. Keep it in a dry place.
