    keeping alpaca and miniture horses together?

    Im thinking about getting a miniture horse and keeping it with an alpaca I was told they get along bt Im wondering how I would feed them... they both eat hay but can they both eat the same grain? if not what would I do and how much do I feed them?

    I looked it up, and it appears that they eat different grains... I'm not sure though. I Don't think it would be too much hassle to just feed them their grains separately.

    Would you not be stabling them to eat? I have always stabled my horses when eating grain. I would think you could find something they both could eat. I can't think of anything, I only know about horses, sorry. Good luck

    You would have to separate everyone even if they did eat the same food. One is going to be herd leader, gobble his and then steal the others food.
