While it is tempting to let them graze only, horses do not do well with a rapid change in their diet. It is recommended that you make a gradual change, over a 10 to 14 day period, to his diet so that the digestive tract of your horse does not get overly shocked.

Early spring can also be a challenge to finding quality hay. Since it is before the beginning of the new growing season, you might find yourself using poor quality leftovers from the year before. Luckily, there are some options in bagged forage that might help you get the best performance out of your horse – check out the webinar and nutritional paper.
