My horse is stabled full-time. I’ve heard that it’s important he has access to hay, but don’t want him to put on weight. Is that correct?
By Your Horse
Yes. Stabled horses need access to forage 16-18 hours a day. If you are worried about your horse gaining weight, soak some of his hay for 12 hours as this will remove all the nutrients but will still provide the forage he needs.
