I'm wondering what it means when a hay is sold as 15% alfalfa. My horse is about to be moved in with another mare who needs "35% alfalfa" during cold months, and 15% the rest of the year. If someone can explain it in technical terms, I can go from there.
Also, does 15% alfalfa sound okay for my mare? Who gets moderate, easy-going trail rides in good weather and stays outside most of the time. She's 15.2h, QH, arround 15yrs, and doesn't hold weight well. If you could just give me basic guidelines...
