    the majority of my horses won't each orchardgrass. has he always had orchardgrass and is suddenly not eating it, or is this a hay switch? do you have the option of switching to another type of hay?

    hes always been on a OG mix of some sort - hes always been picky like if its stalky he'll pick around.

    I tried giving him one flake a time seem to get him eating it, but filled his net again and it seems like half of its on the ground and half is still in the bag.

    Could he just be stressed/full from being in? He has been off the antibotics for a couple days now - I come over on my lunch and find him just standing there.

    I was going to buy some alfalfa bales try mixing it in. and I was doing the pellets mid-day/mash type thing for about a week. I think hes just spoiled realizes he is always going to get something better. Its not like he doesnt eat it AT ALL. He just picks until I give him something else.
