    Speak to the barn owner, ask if your horse can be moved to a different field. And if he won’t do it, you just leave the barn. I mean it is your horse…

    There is always a risk in changing over from one feed to another too rapidly. I would keep them off of it most of the time and let them out for an hour, then two, then three, as they adapt, and just feed them grass hay while they are being kept off of the pasture. Hopefully they can be outside moving around and not locked up in stalls in order to do this. The other option would be to put them in grazing muzzles for most of the time they are out.
    A concern I would have is with the calcium to phosphorus ratio. Some wheats have too little calcium, which can lead to serious calcium deficiencies. There should be at least a 1 to 1 ratio, and 2 to 1 calcium to phosphorus ratio is even better. You should have that tested and/or discuss it with your vet to see what is advised.
