Just Swiched my Horses off Grain!

After feeding sweet feeds for 40 years, our farm has switched completely to forage. Standlee Alfalfa/Timothy pellets and cubes. Our heaving horses finally got relief! Many of them are even calmer under saddle, and even the hard keepers are gaining weight. Anyone else tried getting off grain?

Yep i have best thing i ever did saves alot of money did RBS, senior feeds. Iv gone all forage and just a vitamin mineral suplament. My horses looks great shinny coats and not so stinken fat now.I do beet pulp with no molasses but thats it. With feed prices going sky high. I"ll stay with my forage only diet for my horses much heather choice. The beet pulp isnt a every day thing either.

Hooray!!!! Congratulations Horsey!!! I wish that more people would wake up and realize that horses DO NOT need grain. ESPECIALLY sweet feed. It is nothing but junk food for your horse.
