We have a 30 year old Arab gelding that is impossible to keep weight on but last winter he actually was almost a little fat because of our new feeding schedule.
We use a can that probably equals three cups of feed.
Two cans soaked beet pulp pellets.
Two and a half cans senior horse feed.
Allot of alfalfa cubes!!! Like four cans (We had to switch from cubes to pellets often, he would get board).
Three quarters of a cup vegetable or corn oil.
And a cup of cracked corn.
And as much alf as he can eat.
THREE TIMES A DAY!
This sounds like allot of work but it is so worth it! And feeding the horse lunch is extremely important!!!!!
Make sure to keep a blanket on your horse all winter, shivering and trying to keep warm on there own can bern calories! And if your horse does not shed out by themselves make sure to body clip them!! If they are sweating because they still have there winter coat that is just calories running of them!
