Re: worried

Hi Sherry,

I know that your part of the country has suffered tremendous drought and that is a real concern for horse owners. Yes, you can feed hay cubes -- that will work just fine. Give them free choice, broken into small pieces. And, keep fresh water very close by. Grass hay is fine, or even a grass/alfalfa mix is good.

All the best,

Dr. Getty
