I picked some Calf Manna up at the store last week, because I noticed it has vitamin supplements and linseed (which I think is another name for flax?). I am trying to "bulk up" my mare, and I had flaxseed recommended to me. Also, even though a 25# bag was a little pricey, it says I only have to feed a pound per day. Annie (my horse) doesn't really like it, so I mix it with a pound of sweet feed. I don't really like sweet feed, though (but, lol, Annie sure does...).
First of all, what do you all think of Calf Manna? I have never used it before, but for the past week I have been giving her a pound of it per day. I *think* her coat seems shinier, but maybe I'm imagining it...anyways, how is it as a supplement, from your experience.
Secondly, would you recommend getting her to eat the Calf Manna another way, or is 1 lb. Of sweet feed not really significant for an approx. 1,000 lb. Horse?
