Just last month we got the rest of our property pastured in and the hooves have improved on all, already, and the two oldest in my herd are now in perfect shape going into winter! Gradually had everyone on 2 hours per day per set. Mares then males! Just wanted to encourage those of you who do drylots, hay and grain to get some rich grass in the diets if you can! I was seeing weight drop on my middle agers, and it was the ultimate struggle to keep weight on my senior stallion. They are all nice and pudgy, ready to stay warm in the winter months. Gradually introduce grass and you are good to go. I have also noticed bellies have tucked up a lot.
