I know there are about 1000 calories per pound of alfalfa. Here is his diet. How many calories would this be about?
He also gets all you can eat grass hay
4 flakes of alfalfa (about 25lbs)
3 lbs of wet cob (corn,oats and barley)
And his mineral and vitamin sup
Same as AM
He's a hard keeping TB (16.3 hands) and we have lost WAY more weight this winter then I would have liked too. He needs a good 100-150lbs :(
Is this to many calories for him or fine until he gains the weight back then slowly reduce the amount?
This diet has worked before (except he was only getting 2 flakes of alfalfa instead of 4) so I have decided to go back (i have tried more healthier, less sugar diets and that how we ended up where we are)
