  1. Hi. What’s your advice on a changing diet of hay? Often I have to have different sources of hay in the barn. I feed 3 times a day. Should I mix within one feeding (time consuming and difficult)? Feed different sources different feedings? Different days? Does it matter? What’s the best way to transition from one large supplier to another?

      The bottom line is it doesn’t matter as long as the horse does not have an digestive distress – e.g. bloating, diarrhea. Hay actually take several days to make their way through the digestive system so what you fed yesterday, and the day before, is still in there so you will get some mixing.

      You are most likely to have trouble when switching to a very different hay, such as from alfalfa to a mature cutting of grass. Try to mix them if that is the case, or at least do alternate feedings during the day. When switching to a new supply always arrange to have enough of the old hay on hand to switch slowly. For example, 25% new hay for first 2 days, then 50% for next two days, etc.
