In the upper midwest we called it the hay mow, and in Washington I've only heard loft.
I don't buy it, either. Unrestricted hay (even local grass hay) makes my minis obese. I've tried it before to see if they would stop eating, and they don't. They don't self-regulate, they just eat...
No Fence Shall Hold Me: a short story of a miniature horse who constantly finds ways to get out of the fence. Nothing much else happens in this story, except she gains weight and spooks at things. ...
Every bay horse I've owned has been sensible, brave and liked to work. I love how roans and grays look, though.
We use slow feeder bags, otherwise the winds in fall/winter blow the hay out of the run ins. In summer we feed it on the ground.

I left you in the dry lot
how did you
escape so fast?
It is a lot of work- smaller properties are more work because you have to manage with smaller equipment and find places for everything, rotate pastures etc. It's harder to keep things tidy if you...
I have both as well (for mini air ferns) and the hole in the Easy Breathe allows for greater grass consumption than the Best Friend (judged by weight gain). But I like the air circulation through...
My guys walk up to me to have their muzzles put on because they know then they'll get out in the pasture. They are still very fat with the muzzles and would founder without them. The muzzle lets...
I avoided rubs on my small pony with Best Friend by sizing up to a cob muzzle. If they're near the top of the size range then sizing up might help with rubs.
Midnight Furry misses Bob and Midnight Fury, so she is taking donations for snow tires for her wheelie so she and the babies can head back south.
Meanwhile, Midnight Furry turned out to not be a "he" (it is hard to tell with chinchillas) and was unknowingly pregnant with Morning Furry's baby. The newborn chinchilla's name is Afternoon Furry,...
In a strange twist of events, the Prime Minister of Canada adopts Midnight Furry, who distances himself from his humble roots in the barn.
While auditioning for the part, John Travolta mispronounces the lost chinchilla's name "Morning Furry" as Morgan Freeman.
Midnight Furry and his wheelie thing turn out to be the fastest Chinchilla Bob has ever known. He races up and down the barn aisle as Bob watches.
An old retired race trainer, down on his luck,...
I'm sorry for the loss of your sweet pony.
I had all them as a teen but the only one I still have is Bonnie and The Haunted Farm. I wish I'd kept them all.
When I learned to ride western in the 70s, we didn't learn to post. I developed a great sitting trot, but wish I had been taught to post. I had to learn to post when I took dressage lessons as an...
We put out some cat food to attract neighborhood cats to eat our mice. The food kept disappearing so we thought a cat was eating it. After awhile we put the wildlife camera aimed at the cat food...
We had to add a wire 2" off the ground to keep the pony from crawling under. She flattened herself and crawled under just like you describe.
This is what I get now: 502 Bad Gateway (Firefox)
Started getting this while clicking on thread titles for the first time tonight (Firefox). It only happens on some of them. Some threads are viewable and some get the message with Cloudflare.
My Shetland cross is often been mistaken for a Haflinger - she has a flaxen mane and tail and panagare that's more visible when she's got her winter coat. She's just a pony- no Halflinger in her at...
I prefer heat and put on a sweatshirt at 70 degrees. We don't get many days above 70 degrees here, so I'm always cold. But we don't have bugs, either, so that's good.
