wow i didnt know any of that stuff. we asked the first vet we got if thats what we could feed him and she said it would be fine. but we ended up getting another vet cause we didnt know how horsie she was.
We had a scare with the whole laminitis thing, thats why we got x-rays done.
we are looking into getting some lucern hay, we just have to find some that is good enough for horses and not rediculously priced. we have heaps of types of food for horses in the area, all the grainy stuff, mixtures and like fine ground stuff like copra. im not sure what most of it is called of the top of my head. we do have to drive an hour to get resonably priced food but thats not a problem.
we usually get the copra, pony pellets and lucern chaff for our horses.we usually give then calcium with their food but we have run out and its not very available around here. we also use to feed our horses sunflower seeds but we dont anymore jsut because of the price. my favourite horse food to feed them though is weightlifter, it os so good for them but it is very expensive.
i will ring our vet today and let you know what she thinks. thank you so much, you are a great help!
