Aesthetic, for some reason I remember you living near-ish to me in Texas? Maybe that was someone else.
If you do though, or even if you don't, do you have a tractor supply? They sell alfalfa pellets/cubes by Standlee or Stockman (standlee is cheaper/better quality IMO) in 40 lb bags. Alfalfa is VERY expensive for a bale in my area too ($18+ for a 50 lb bale) but Standlee has kept their price at $13.99 for a while in my area and there is a guarenteed nutritional level in the pellets. Feeding even 3-4 lbs a day can be very beneficial, especially if your mare has ulcers because it works as a buffer. My filly couldn't comfortably eat grain without some alfalfa pellets too because of a sensitive tummy.

them are meant to stay till the end.
