Any problems other than introducing them slow ? Laminitis ?
Good luck

Just watch they don't start growing wool. :wink:

Think you'd be all right if you limited time on pasture for a few days and they had some dry hay in them when turned out.

Pretty hard to tell from 2000 miles away.



What stage are the plants in and what grains? :?

I planted a few 20 to 40 acre deer plots for some hunters oats to be exact and I always filled my cows up on hay and then ran em on the oat patches with no problems, but never had horses on oats i keep em penned/stabled and feed them costal and pellets, mainly because they were always chasing the cows when i wasnt around, but this year cows are few so thought i might run the hay burners on some oats.
good luck

I always plant a 3 acres field in oats or wheat for my horses, pen them up with a bale of coastal or alfalfa then just turn them out when grain is big enough to graze, leave the the hay in pen they have to come in to water and keep it out all the time, i've been doing this for yrs and never had any trouble. No grain last couple yrs from lack of rain but worked well before that. These are usuing horses and get rode on a pretty regular basis so they were not just turned out all the time. don't know if that makes a difference or not

Just for conversations' sake friends, I think Hay Maker ASKED for opinion on this thread. :D

I know, I'm also guilty of expressing my opinion when not asked. That still doesn't make it right. :wink:
