Hi everyone! I am leasing a 7 year old OTTB. He is a little underweight due to colicing twice in a short amount of time over the spring. His owner has him on beet pulp, alfalfa, and a weight gain supplement from smartpak and he is gaining his weight back. A lady the boards where he is kept made the comment, "I would never give alfalfa to a thoroughbred". Of course, she doesnt HAVE a thoroughbred so I want to attribute this to OTTB's bad reputation. But have any of you guys ever experienced any negative effects when their thoroughbred gets alfalfa on a regular basis?
