Yes we've always done this with all ours when we used to ride them. I was always told by my RI not to just bring in regularly for work, otherwise she'd get wise to it and not be happy at being brought in just to get tacked up. And she was right of course, so when we moved them home and they lived out we still made a point of fetching in for a token feed. Great idea.I'm a great believer in bringing in every day for a teeny feed - if I only brought Hogan in for work or grooming, I think I'd be viewing his rear in retreat on a regular basis. He doesn't get much - a handful of nuts, molli and carrot - barely covers the bottom of the bucket.
