Studies on the Misaki horse. 2. On the grazing behaviors



Bulletin of the Faculty of Agriculture, Miyazaki University 21(2): 315-322



During summer Misaki horses spent 14-16 h grazing and 8-10 h resting while in winter they spent 15-19 h grazing and 5-7 h resting. The main fodders eaten during summer were Zoysia japonica, Imperata cylindrica and Paspalum thunbergii and during winter Miscanthus sinensis and shrubs such as Machilus thunbergii, Rubus sieboldii and Mallotus japonicus. Daily DM intake was 8-9 kg during summer and 6-8 kg in winter.
