Re: Managing feeding with three different equines

Hi Laura,

Ideally you would separate the fat pony from her friends so she can only get a properly weighed amount of hay each day.  That would mean splitting the current pasture so the younger pony and the WB are in one area and she is in another in a situation where she can't reach any of their hay.

The other option would be to keep doing what your doing and put her in a muzzle 24/7 as well.  That is less ideal because you would have no way to measure how much hay she is eating and based on your description she is IR and in need of a restricted (as in weighed amounts of intake on a daily basis) diet.
