The pony came from a similar field so I think she'll be ok. The others maybe not so much. Mostly dirt but were fed alfalfa hay year around. I'd say the field I have them in is not more than 30% alfalfa. Think that's too much? I honestly do appriciate the input. Now I know what to watch for. I don't have any place to put any of them that's not tall grass and alfalfa mixed. Even my corals have tall grass right now. It's been a really wet spring/summer.
I come from a working dog (hounds)back ground and have very little use for useless animals. So if these horses don't work out they'll go down the road until I get some that do. I don't see them as big cuddly dogs. I can't stand any animals getting into my personal space. I just wanted to verify that this was inappropriate. When he did it, all I was doing is pushing him back. I didn't know if this was enough or if he needed more discipline.
