Wow. Lots of info here...
Ok, I may not have the money immediately for an emergency, but if an emergency did happen, my mum would help pay. Money is -very- tight for me. I'm nineteen and have had absolutely zero luck in finding a job, and I've been looking for months now. Both of my horses are at least 4's on the scale. I would prefer them nearer a 6 or 7, but a 4 isn't that bad, I don't think.
Yes, the alfalfa and corn are the only feeds I've got right now. I introduced my horses to the alfala and corn slowly, adding it in with their grain for a few days beforehand. My sweet feed ran out just the other day, so I switched them to all alfalfa and corn. After their grain ran out was when my gelding went off his feed. As I said before, he usually is very greedy with his feed... but he is picky. He's always been picky. I've had trouble finding feed that he'll actually eat willingly. He won't eat treats such as sugar cubes, apples, andwill barely eat carrots. Honestly, he's more trouble than he's worth when it comes to feed... Lol.
I'm only feeding the corn because my grandmother bought it for her ducks and chickens, but they wouldn't touch it. She gave it to me, and in order to not waste it, I figured I could feed it to the horses with the alfalfa.
