arabian feed

What do ya'll feed your arabian horses? For those who have one. I have my on just a 10% pellet from a local feed store, but I have noticed he has been eating oak leaves, dirt and even the stumps from palmetto trees, I have talk to the vet and they said he is missing something in his diet, so I have been putting minerals (loose) in his feed but he doesnt eat it.So I need to find a low fat good feed for him.Any suggestions? Thanks

Can you post photos? You could try mixing his minerals with applesauce and putting it on his feed.

Try a feed such as Strategy, it is a pelleted form. Also, how much hay are you feeding him? Does he have access to good pasture?

Photos of what, him eating the trees, dirt?? I will try the applesauce but when there is something new in his feed he pushes it to the side and wont eat it,he is already over weight so I have to beware of the fat intake and sugars,as you know he is a hot horse, I'll look into the Strategy.

I take it Strategy is the same as Purina, because when I google strategy, purina comes up, is this right??

I would look into a good ration balancer which is a vitamin/mineral supplement that you do NOT need to add anything too for horses on plenty of forage that are easier keepers .. there is also NOTHING in a ration balancer to make a horse hot...

Peggysue: I have no experience with any good ration balancer, he does get "essentials" (loose)minerals I think purina puts it out,added to his feed everyday, there are some days he wont touch it, 24/7 coastal hay, fixin to switch to tifton 44, and on good green pasture grass about 2 hrs. A day for about 4 days a week(maybe more) whenever I get a chance to let them in my front yard, there pasture has no grass right now.So anything you suggest, I'd really appreciate it.

If you can get Purina go wtih Enrich32 and do away with the minerals you are now feeding him.. the Enrich is a pellet that very few horses won't eat..
