This is the first winter for my horse (with me anyway) but he has always been an outdoor horse. He's going to be 6 in January and we have some pretty cold winters here. Can anyone give me advice on what grain or roughage I should be giving him now to keep his calories up and keep him warm outside? He's a pleasure horse that gets exercised lightly about 3x a week, appears to be an easy keeper, and is on hay and limited pasture outside. I estimate he's about 1200 lbs, and very fit.
