My rescues are given free choice coastal and started on 911
. I give the 911
at 1/2 oz am & pm for at least 14 days. I also give the 911
3 days before and after any worming or events on ALL of my horses. I will also give a little alfalfa too - I am one that prefers the pasture blocks of compressed alfalfa to rolls of coastal and like mine to have access at least 6 hours a day.
Your mare could probably go straight to my "stage 2" where I start adding feed. I LOVE Ultium. I feed at least twice daily (3 times is better) and total out at least 6 pounds a day Ultium. I generally start at 1/4 to 1/2 scoop 3 times daily with 911
and build up to 6 lbs, then adjust as needed after 10 days or so at 6 lbs. You should weigh it until you figure how much in your scoop weighs what.
Once they are starting to put weight on I backoff or stop the 911
(except to give at worming or events) and move to Bloom
If the horse is older I start 911
and Total Performance
immediately and once I reach "stage 3" I add in Bloom
in place of 911
and continue Total Performance
. Here is an article
about figuring just how much protein your horse needs and how much he is actually getting per day and the sources of protein.
My 2 yr old colt currently gets regular sweet feed fed at the barn he is at, Colt Grower
and almost free choice coastal.
Once I get him down here he will get 911
prior to the haul and stay on it at least 2 weeks, switch to Ultium, continue Colt Grower
and switch to Bloom
once he is settled. Will see about the Calm-B
. By Nov I will add in Breeder's Choice
in prep for the breeding shed.
Another great combo is Bloom
together. And if you like using Oil
can be replaced with Oil
