  1. Hay shortage,what is a good hay stretcher

    The wood chewing can be fixed by getting them out of the dang stalls too. Moot point anyway since what she wanted was to supplement and stretch her existing hay. Also please not it says SOME horses. There are a lot more who won't chew wood. Now, I know you prefer to get in the last word, so have at it.

    Cubes are fine on their own The fiber length is still there. Its the pellets, ie, ground up hay, that presents problems.

    Poor little mess. Those feet look like they hurt.
  4. Hay shortage,what is a good hay stretcher

    Before is easier, so you can just guess the water. About 5# makes a pretty good feeding. I'd start with about 2# til they get used to it. Thats the cubes. Beet pulp about a pound a day, dry weight.

    Use soaked hay cubes or bagged chopped hay instead of pellets. Pellets are the bottom end of nutrition and no help with fiber. Also beet pulp, if you are still feeding SOME hay each meal.

    Good balance to start. He will eventually learn to squat a bit to help hold it

    You can always remove that browband and make a smaller one of leather or vinyl.

    But yet you keep insisting *I* should ignore. How utterly rude and childish of you. And still you keep insulting those who don't agree with you. Also childish. Are you perhaps in the early stages of Dementia? Only thing that really explains your behavior, complete with all your denials.
  16. An American friend living in Austria,

    Pot----kettle.. If you are so oddly attached to that ignore function, why aren't you using it? And I would willingly wish the plague on you if it made you disappear. Bitter? No. I just don't like YOU at all for your hatefulness and rudeness to anyone who doesn't bow to your (in your little mind) superior knowledge here. And, it appears I am not the only one. I'm quite happy otherwise.
