This year has been difficult with regard to hay prices, and frankly, the quality of that same hay. It is low in protein and our girls are finishing up the winter quite thin. We try and combat the nutritional deficit by feeding some grain, bumping up the vitamins and mineral we feed and giving them treats that are nutritious. We also give the girls sea kelp and a yeast powder free choice (which means it is always out there for them to snack on). They had run out of their snack yesterday, so when I refilled the feeder, it was a happy moment for the girls. Donkey was especially enthusiastic, and had to take a little break to clean off her chompers.
