How much alfalfa pellets does it take to = 1 alfalfa flake?
Our feed store is out of alfalfa hay and will be for sometime. Because of this huge drought in Texas, they are having to get their hay out of state and they're having some problems.
They carry alfalfa pellets and that's what I'll have to use until they get more. I've been feeding my mare one flake of alfalfa 2x daily. How much alfalfa pellets would equal the same amount of a normal flake? I know the size of flakes ranges, but anything in the ballpark would be fine! I would just look on the bag for directions, but it's blank: no description, name, or anything.
Thanks for your help!
P.S. I'm trying to put weight back on this mare and the diet she is on right now is helping her gain. I really can't afford to not give her any alfalfa because it's so crucial to her diet right now.
