Horses on our acreage receive hay in the winter 3 times a day, and only in extreme cold and twice a day otherwise . Also some alfalfa pellets and oats as a snack midday.
Horses should be fed little food a few times a day.
I need to follow that program! Eat little bits throughout the day.
That is our horse feeding schedule. If we are gone for a few days then we put out a bale of hay and they self feed.
They are a gift to us year round!
