horses coming to the barn
 
HI...I put the round bayles of hay away from the barn ..way in the back or the field and the water at the barn so it gives them approx 1 km to walk back and forth to get natural movement BUTTTT lately I guess I've spoiled them going to get them morning and night to come to the barn to get their feed as I have a pregnant mare in there..I guess there use to that routine but I'd like it for them to come by themselves instead of me having to walk back there...any tricks you may have :?

I always catch my horses at night and give them thier suppliments after a while they started coming because they know they get thier grain (The first few days I just stood out there with grain and shook it ((not safe if you have lots of horses in one feild)).) (did I do that right lol)

I don't think they'd hear me if I would shake the feed but I do blow a whistle ..since a new preggo mare arriving here in December my routine is well gone...
