    I have taken my older boys (1yr old) off grain for the summer, except for a little BOSS everyday and they are still toooo fat, I keep hay out free choice......should I cut back on their hay, they are out on a grassy yard.... Elwood is such a lug!

    sure you can cut back and let them just browse around in their yard.

    Yep, a little hay in the morning and a little in the evening will be fine, just be ready for the "FEED ME I'M STARVING" cries from them, oh and mine seem to think that the grass in their yard is dirty as they won't eat it and I have to mow INSIDE the goat fence!

    Yep, I know...I mow my guys yard too and they just stand there and watch me, and I think they might even laugh at me!

    Mine never used to eat grass. Now they will, as long as they can go in and out of the barn as they please. My spoiled rotten babies. :roll:

    Yours should do just great! :)
