Re: [RC] [RC-Digest] Vol: 03.3945 hay in hind gut - Jody Rogers-Buttram

Not trying to be a smarta** either, but I am married to a farmer, and a roll of hay taller than the horse, say a 5 x 6 roll (large roll) It will weigh well OVER 200 lbs.  Two adults, can strain their tails off and *maybe* get it to roll off a flatbed truck.
PS.  But that does sound like a LOT of hay to be in a horse.  ;-)

I'm just curious about the hind gut holding 150 to 200 lbs of hay.  Do you mean a combination of roughage and liquid?  I'm just trying to get around the picture of my horse standing next to a 200 lb round bale....taller than he is....and having that inside him.  I'm not trying to be a smart a** (I'll leave that to the rogue donkey).  I may have missed something in a previous posting.  I am enjoying this discussion about feeding.
