I've always believed that meadow hay was better for ponies and oaten better for horses. Is this true? I have a v fat pony who needs to loose weight and a TB who needs to put a bit of weight on!! It's a difficult situation. I can't really seperate the 2 at feed time. I've been relying on the fact that the TB is the dominant 1 and (hopefully) will not let the pony near her hay. ATM thay both get meadow hay. I've been considering putting her on oaten and leaving him on meadow. Is this a wise thing to do? I'm worried that the pony will get hold of the oaten though when the TB had had oaten before she wouldn't let any other horse near it... I think I'm worrying about nothing but need some re-assurance or other advise. The pony get 1 biscuit at night and she gets 2 biscuits at night and 2 in the morning. They both get a hard feed at night too but obviously the pony's is tiny and the TB's is much larger.
