Easy keepers and too much pasture
I have three horses, a 15 year old gelding, a 13 year old mare, and 10 year old mare and a pony (3 year old mare) out on a 25 acre pasture and not getting worked at the moment. No one is getting any grain either, other then a couple of handfuls when I bring them in for some reason or another
They are ALL easy keepers and very fat, though the pony is not quite as fat as the horses. I need to get them up off the pasture full time, before they founder.
However I dont have the available dry lots, though I do have stalls.
Finally my questions are...How do you handle your easy keepers on pasture?
Do you have dry lots or stalls? What kind of schedule do you have them on during the summer? Do you give them hay or grain when they are up in the stall or dry lot?
Thank you in advance for you help.
