Hello All, I have been a long time reader of this forum (and other places around google to find out as much about horse nutrition as possible) and would like to know your take on my horse's behavior. I have two horses, Freckles (23, Pony Of America, Long since healed fractured Hip, around 700 pounds, body condition 5). Freckles will eat anything under the sun and so she is not my main concern (although she has been getting pickier as of late) Chance (25, Arabian, 950 pounds, body scoring between 4-5...I can't really tell. He has been abandoned without feed two times in his life, when I got him he had extensive parasites in his gut that have now been wormed out. It was gross. And he was around a 3 on the condition scale when I got him). Both are recently floated, vaccinated, and dewormed. I used to board both of my horses and now they live with me! They have, however, expereinced a big decline in the amount of hay they are eating and were both losing weight. Or perhaps they were always not finishing everything and I never noticed. I am worried if they are getting enough roughage intake and what people think of the current diet I have them on. These grain amounts where upped in the last month and since then they have gained more weight and made me feel better. We live in Arizona where it is finally getting cooler outside! Chance: AM- 2.2 Lbs Senior Feed; 2.2 Lbs Alfalfa/Bermuda Grass Pellets PM- Same Freckles AM- 1.1 Lbs Senior Feed; 1.1 Lbs Alfalfa/Bermuda Grass Pellets PM- Same They are turned out on a pasture that is 1/5th an acre all day. The pasture is completely bermuda grass and is irrigated. They do not overgraze it (even though they are on it all day); but it is quite short. They get free choice bermuda hay during the day (but they usually do not touch it) and at night they each consume around 5 lbs bermuda hay when they are locked in their stalls. (They eat tons of hay when they are in their stalls, but I bought this house and land to see them playing outside everyday)! I have a couple areas of my yard not included in the pasture with long grass that Freckles will chomp on for an hour every day and Chance usually turns his nose up at it after a few bites. Thoughts? Have I just spoiled them to the point that they are overly picky now? Sorry for the long post, and thanks for reading!
