I’ve always loved everything about feeding time — the sounds, the herd dynamics and interactions, the exercise. Thought I’d share it with you in this video.
Yukon is the first horse I feed, he gets Equine Senior as it’s more palatable to him. The rest of the horses get alfalfa/grass mix. We used to feed big round bales of grass and I could put enough out at once to last them a week. However, with the drought on the west side last year and grass hay in short supply, we switched to local grass/alfalfa mix. It’s about twice as expensive and even with netting over it the horses tend to consume it too quickly so we’re back to feeding twice daily. It’s alright, I do enjoy communing with them.
Izzy is at the end of the video and is still working on her manners at feeding time. Like the horses, she needs to wait until I put her feed out and move away before she can dive in.
Enjoy, and happy Friday!
