Yeah, the feed store out here isn't really that great, and neither is the Tractor Supply... that's why I feed alfalfa and oats... it's one of the best feeds you can get out here and it's fairly cheap, so it's in my budget. I think my friend was having the feed store supply her with beet pulp at one time for a mare who had major weight problems... If I remember correctly, she had to special order the feed and then had to pay almost 30 dollars for it...
I'm going to town either tomorrow or Saturday, so I'll stop by the store and look for something... and if they don't have anything, I'll check out tractor supply, though from experience, they don't sell many types of feed... alfalfa and sweet feed are it, I think...
I generally like for my horses to be at a 4 or 5 body score during the warmer months and I would prefer them to be around a 6 during winter months, but that just doesn't happen...
Our quality hay we feed, I can tell you for a fact, isn't good. My uncles buy the hay and look for the cheapest because they just don't really care, but at least during winter the horses and cows do get free choice... atleast it's better than nothing.
Luvs2ride1979, my best friend has a mare who is extremely photogenic... you could take a pic of her in a horrible pose and it'd come out beautiful... I'm always so jealous of my friend because I can take a hundred pics of my horses and have only one or two really nice ones and she can take a hundred pics of her horse and all of them will be frame-worthy... Lol.
