I have an 8 year old thouroughbred who could use an extra 50 pounds on him.
I had been feeding him just Triple Crown Complete, with all his supplements once a day, and obviously he gets hay in the morning and evening.
My BO suggested I add Timothy Pellets and Rice bran oil to his diet. So I started feeding him that too and I broke it up into two feedings.
I just want to make sure Im giving him enough of both.
In the am he gets 1 1/2 scoops of Triple Crown, and a scoop of Timothy pellets with one scoop of all his supplements.
In the evening he gets 1 1/2 scoops of Triple Crown and 1 scoop of Timothy pellets with one scoop of electrolytes.
Does this sound right? He gets about 6 pounds of Triple Crown all together. Is it right to mix the pellets with the triple crown?
Also I feed him his morning feeding cause I am there, but I rely on the BO to feed him his evening meal, which I don't think she is doing all the time, she forgets things.
I would feed him the second feeding but I live to far and with gas prices its hard enough to go out once everyday let alone twice, so that's why I make sure to put all his supplements in his morning feeding.
How bad would it be to give him just one feeding? I want to make sure he gets all the food for the day since he needs to gain, but like I said sometimes I come to the barn and his evening meal hadnt been fed the night before. (just to clarify its just the extra feeding, he always gets his hay twice a day)
I will eventually switch barns but for now this one is in my price range and except for her forgetting sometimes, I have no other complaints.
What should I do?
Sorry for the lenghty post
Oh sorry also wanted to ask is 2 scoops all together of Timothy pellets good? Should he get more or less? And is it good to mix it with the triple crown or should I just put the pellets seperate in his feed bin?
