  1. Horse Talk
    I was just wondering how to keep minis from becoming fat on pasture. We need them on there because they are companions for my other horse. I know they tend to become fat really easily so what's the best deal? I am not so sure about grazing muzzles, apparently they don't like them and they are...

    When I got my QH gelding, I knew he had issues being caught in the field. He is out 24/7, comes into the barn only for feeding times and goes back out and now that it's warm and dry, he goes out on grass between the morning and evening feeds (between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.) When he's on the dirt...

    Basically, I am currently boarding my horse at a boarding facility. I am planning on moving him home in several days, (no other horses here but several other farm animals to keep him company.)When he comes, I hope to have him outside 24/7. Where he is now, they bring him into a stall at night...
  4. Barn Maintenance
    Has anyone had any experience using a track system on the high desert? I am thinking of putting one in so the horses will be more likely to move about during the day, the only problem is that all the examples I see are in areas that, well, grow grass. Where I am at we get about 9 inches of...

  7. Horse Nutrition
    I am planning on moving my horse from Austin, TX to Colorado Springs, CO. The pasture we are moving to isn't fertilized and the current owners don't fertilize the land. They let the grass just grow when it does and don't help it along. I was wondering if it would be smart to plant a different...
  8. Farm Forum
    I joined this site for horse advice, because the only person who helped me with my horses was my dad, and he passed away so I need some help. We keep our horses on a 7-8 acre farm behind my house. I know their feeding schedule for the winter, but have no idea about the summer. My dad would take...

    I'm probably not going to get a horse on my property due to the home owners association :cry: but just out of curiosity, if i did get a horse, they can't eat St. Augistine grass, right? Which kind of grass would i have to put in for the best grazing? Thanks!
