I just wanted some advice...
I asked this on Yahoo answers and it became very obvious that many people had no idea what I was talking about.
I currently feed my senior mare (she's 22) 2Lb soaked beet pulp along with 2Lb soaked alfalfa pellets and then I've been giving her 4IB of Purina Senior. She then gets her meals of Grass hay.
My mare is not overly thin and she is not heavy. She is ideal. However, I don't like the senior feed for a few reasons.
The senior feed is complete (meaning it has built in hay). However, this also means that it is not as concentrated.
I'm wondering if it would be better to switch my mare on a more concentrated feed so she gets more out of the grain I fed her. I was thinking of a product like Ultium or a high quality sweet feed. I say this because although the senior is made for 'seniors' I wonder if I feed enough to make a difference since I only feed 4IB and it is made to be fed in a much larger portion.
I mare eats hay just fine. She does not yet need a complete feed.
Any opinions on switching to Ultium or a sweet feed?
