My daughter is a few miles from you, but that is about what she pays now. She feeds half Alfalfa and half Timothy. The high cost of feeding horses in S. Cal. now, is the reason she no longer breeds and cut down drastically on her number of horses. Sadly, she can also, no longer afford to rescue. Add the feed costs to the higher cost of all other equine related needs, then almost everyone I know here, has either cut down or no longer own horses. Sad really.

I've got a feeling that the OP might not be planning to update us. Though I really, really hope to read very soon that her filly has finally got enough hay.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.

This might be a dumb comment - but isn't alfalfa the equivalent of Lucerne hay in the UK and Australasia?

The rice bran is transported by car which is a yellow 1998 Ford Mustang cobra.The hay had to be transported by truck and and my friend turned that into a work truck with tools in it.He lets m ride the mustang it's not mine.Barbie has an appointment Monday at 11:00 a.m with the equine dentist and she going to come for free to see what she has to do to her teeth if there is problems.Barbie does have an overbite and sometimes drops her feed.The veterinarian is the one that recommended I feed her rice bran.I will get her some hay as well myself instead of waiting on the truck.I will tell the truth beside the barn there is a big tub about 30 gallons full of green stuff inside it and it doesn't look fresh to me It's been like that for over a year.My friend tells me that won't hurt her so I took the advice which was wrong.She needs fresh water everyday because currently she only drinks a small amount of water two times a day that might be why she is not gaining weight.I will clean that tub out and everything.Thank you for your advice.I will get a boarding facility for my horse if it comes down to it.
