The amount of hay the horse needs everyday depends upon the size of the horse. However, large or draught horses can eat up to 30 pounds or 30 Kg in a day or more, while ponies have a slower metabolism than the adult horses; they need a lower percentage of hay to their body weight. For the happiest and healthiest horse, it is best to have hay accessible all the time because many horses are self-regulating therefore, they need hay any time. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
