-With the Strategy, do you guys feed it dry or soaked? I've been feeding mine soaked, both because they enjoy a warm meal on a cold night and because one youngling has teeth issues that makes it much easier to eat. After seeing how much it swells when soaked, I'm nervous to feed it dry...will it cause choke? I used to have a senior gelding that had choke problems on Equine Senior, and the pellets looked virtually similar.
-With the oil, is plain jane vegetable oil from the grocery store okay? Everything says 'any type of vegetable oil' but when they're listed, they show corn-canola-etc but nothing says regular veggie oil.
-His previous owner only fed a small amount of Calf Manna (no, I have no idea why) and kept him stalled with little or no turnout, so it's no wonder he's underweight. He's not Extremely skinny, but his ribs do show a little and his hipbones are rather prominent. At our place we have constant turnout with free access to stalls, free choice local hay, and decent pasture although the pasture is slim pickings this time of year. What amounts of feed should I be giving him, keeping in mind that he needs to put on extra weight? Yes, I am able to do twice-daily feedings...
Anyway, can you help with my questions? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
