How much hay does a mini need?

What do miniature horses eat?

One bale of hay will usually last one miniature horse for a week.

Miniature horses don’t require a lot of acreage, nor do they eat near as much as the larger breeds.

You must carefully watch the diets of miniature horses.  Because they evolved on the barren Shetland Islands, most miniature horses are “easy keepers”, and metabolize food extremely efficiently. Miniature horses should never eat people food, and some miniature horses need low-feed muzzles to keep them from getting obese
