Why do Horses Eat hayWhat are horses eating hay for?
Even the small saddle room would make most horses disappear.
As Jennifer said: "That's fun, eat hay with all the juicy-looking lush weed! As we migrated from arid, stony California to the lush, verdant Tennessee grassland, one of the things we found is that if horses have the chance to be as close as possible to how they would have lived in the wilderness, and that they have the choice they need to make up for their own diet.
If they have enough of the high sweeteners of the cold seasonal grasslands in central Tennessee, they change to prawn or Bermuda (warm seasonal grasslands, low sucrose content). Bermuda has been grown in a barrel, but it is still less than 25% of the available grassland. Thus, even in summers, half a ball of Bermuda hay is still distributed in the mornings and evenings.
There are two main factors: to allow the horses to move as much as possible through the way we spread them and to give them an extra opportunity to compensate for the high sugar content of these cold seasonal herbs. It' always interesting to me that despite all the chilly sweets around - and Klee, oh my God, Klee is everywhere!
and nibbled on straws of weed. Not hay. It was my choice to see whether he ate the same weed every bit or a different one. As we were moving out of South California, we were alerted by many that horses could not be out on the abundant Tennessee meadows around the clock.
Immediately went to feral horses for my lesson. I' ve found that the meadow the horses need is not beautiful. This is not what one would have expected when travelling through Kentucky, or even our little piece of central Tennessee. We have seven or eight different indigenous plants (not GMO ), many herbs, blackberries, shrubs and all types of weed.
The majority of grazing on horses here are thick rugs made from a unique species of cold seasonal gras (high sugars content) without tares or trees, which are chemical fertilised and sprinkled against insects and intestines. Everything sucks for the steed. And if you leave a horseman no option, he'll eat anything to keep on living.
He used his tongues so fascinating that it was hard to concentrate on which stalk of weeds disappeared. I can' believe it! A little tallow, take a nibble of fruit garden, make up for it with some (warm time of year, low sugar) cancerous weeds, an inconspicuous weeds here and there, a branch of Bermuda, but never a nibble of shamrock.
He was just hiding in the center of the trefoil after a few straws of weed. I was reassured by the horses that if I give our boys and girls all the opportunities they need or want, they will take good caretaker. The genetic makeup of a stable knows what the stable needs and when.
And if a steed needs a cleanse, the brains sends it for thistles. When it has had enough of sugar-rich grass, it switches to the low-sugar grass. Looks as if the decision, the words, appear again and again when we set off on this relatively new trip with horses.
So we began by giving the horses the option of whether or not to have a relation with us (see Why Relation First). I respectfully ask you to show your appreciation for the strength of the horse's instincts. Our flock celebrates its eighth birthday in September around the clock in central Tennessee. And if you haven't yet reread these two volumes, then please do so, because with this book, I believe, will come not only the wisdom of discovering, but also the enthusiasm and enthusiasm to get you to get involved in your trip with horses, to do for the horses without renunciation, so that your relation and experiences with adoring, lucky and wholesome horses who are willing to be your partner and who never stop trying for you.
