Horses are usually taught well by the herd at a young age what is good to eat and what is bad. The only real issue is how quickly in heat it can sour, and the fact that alot of horses that are given clippings are done so because they don't have enough substantial forage.( I am not saying that all who are given clippings don't have enough forage to eat). Those that don't get it alot tend to really eat it up fast because it is so good, thus causing some of the problems I referred to earlier. You just have to consider the possibilities and know your own horses eating habits, and therefore make the decision that you feel is right for yours.
