How many of us get up at the crack of dawn with horses pawing, chewing, calling, pacing... anything to get us out to give them food because nature designed them to graze up to 20 hours a day?
Horses' digestive systems never truly stop producing digestive acids. When their sensitive stomachs are empty of food they are stressed, prone to colic, ulcers, and boredom leading to destructive stall vices just to mention a few of the consequences.
Horses should have access to forage at all times. Feeding two, three or even four feedings a day is unnatural for horses. We are tied to feeding them "small meals" throughout the day because we care about their sensitive digestive systems. But what are the horse's eating at night while we are sleeping? Dinner out with friends, overnight outings, a full day away from the barn, those are only memories... .
