foals eating hay
Our six day colt is eating hay...quite a lot. Should we keep it out of his reach? Is it okay to just let him? He is nursing fine also, but he has just started mowing down on the stuff tonight, and I don't want him to cause himself to be sick (he has no teeth to chew it!).
id say he's fine. Cruz started doing that at about four days, and he was fine with it. Just keep an eye on him.
Wait till he starts eatting poo :lol: Ours did that for about a day till they figured out hay was better.
Thanks guys...worried first time mom :) I am so happy to have the forum!
I say just let 'em eat it! :D He should be fine.
LOL @ the poop!
