    How much hay do you feed in the winter

    Mine get free choice grass hay. It ends up being total of (4) flakes through the night, for (3) horses. I put out the same amount during the day; but they usually don't eat it all, since they are out during that time.

    comments on these feeds

    I was wondering about that too. I've never been able to find "the right thing." They are too wound up & mean on the ration balancer I have them on now. It's a good product (seminole equalizer) but I don't think I like the 32% protein...they have never behaved like this before & I know that's...

    comments on these feeds

    I've been looking at both of these feeds for quite awhile now. I was hoping some of you might have tried both. Which one do you like better & why? Thanks!

    Mine are size b, around 400 lbs. The two horses are 7 yrs old & the donkey is 5 yrs. I take them for daily jogs on my golf cart (2 miles) but that's about the only work they get. We plan to train one to pull a cart before long. Here is the link to the one I'm using; they'll be getting 1/2...

    I just started a ration balancer a week ago, which is 32% protein. Now, I'm afraid to use it...i have heard about the "too much protein thing" before & have always been leary. I wish I knew for certain.

    For those that feed grass hay ONLY

    I would love to do grass hay only, but mine look forward to those 2x a day feedings & stand at the gate (even though they only get a handful) just to keep them happy. What to give them instead of? I thought about a bit of carrots & apples with their boss. They get the minerals/salt too.

    anyone use Seminole feeds or supplements?

    Yes, I've used Seminole products & feeds. I like them & they're made here in FL.

    Anyone ever use Neosporin????

    I do and it works great...heals very fast! I've always used it for us and it works just as well for the animals. Also, I've found that vitamin e oil is very good. If you have a bad/deep cut where the hair won't grow back, put the vit e oil on after it's healed from the will...

    TC Lite vs Nutrena Litebalance

    Thnaks for the replies. I think i'll probably go with the TC Lite. I was leaning towards that one anyway. I'm sure the Litebalance is a good product too. More comments please...

    TC Lite vs Nutrena Litebalance

    Has anyone tried both of these? If so, which one do you like better? I want to try it for my guys, but undecided which one. Any comments?

    Watch those cattle panels...

    I don't know if this will help your horse, but it's worth a try. One of mine got a real bad deep cut about 4 in long. I waited & the hair never started growing back. Someone told me to put vitamin e oil on it. Within no time at all, the hair grew back over the scar & I didn't even do it...

    Gelding young colts

    I read in Perfect Horse magazine that you should wait until 1 yr old. He said because you want him to have that masculine neck & head. I would never geld before 1 yr....i remember something about them having feminine characteristics if done too early. Some might not agree, but I'm just...

    How do you train to run behind a golf cart?

    I've been regularly exercising mine on our electric golf cart for 6 yrs now. They love it so much & so do I. I've never had any accident or problem with it. I started them when they were very young. I don't put anyone behind, but one on each side. There really wasn't anything to it, they...

    How can I get him to

    slow down when he's eating? My gelding eats so fast & will eat the others' feed when he's done, unless I have his halter on & hold him back. I get tired of doing that... I guess I could feed him seperately; is there anything else??? He's just a greedy little pig!
