So I have moved my mini to a pasture with short very dry brown summer grass (as I'm in Australia and it's summer here). I feed her twice daily, a mix of alfalfa and wheaten hay equivalent to 1/4 of a flake for each feeding.
She also gets 1 cup of pellets twice a week and 1 or 2 carrots daily.
She is on the pasture 24 hrs but whenever I arrive for feeding I never really see her grazing too much on the pasture.
She is 33" and 2.5 yrs old. I think she weighs 260 lbs. She only gets very light exercise two or three days a week as the heat is extreme at the moment.
I just want to know if what I am feeding her seems excessive?
When the spring grasses start to grow I was going to stop her hand feeding altogether.
