Good for you! I think its wonderful you're taking on a rescue. I personally hate sweet feed. With the passion of a thousand fiery suns (mostly because I prefer my horses to eat a more natural diet). I just feed bran and oats. Horses are grazing animals. I'm willing to bet that although she doesn't really like grass hay, if you scatter it around her pen it will eventually be gone. She may have only been feed alfalfa before, and it really does taste better. But I've never known a horse let perfectly good grass hay go to waste. They all eat it, if a little slower than the yummy alfalfa. So, I would pile on the grass. Also, one of the quickest feeds to put on weight is Equine Senior. I'm pretty sure it is fine to feed to a 2 yo, but I would double check. Senior is a complete feed, and puts weight on like a charm. I was giving it to Scout (7 yo ottb) to fatten him up for winter. Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!
