I tried some Pelleted stuff....it was the Blue Seal pelleted 12% protien I believe...and it still made him kinda hot...not as bad as the other type (which had oats and corn in) but still kinda bad. Also as I was reading the ingredients (I could be wrong on this) I believe it said that it had Wheat By-Products in...or some type of By-Product. I don't want to use anything with by-products in because of how bad they can be.
Most of the tack shops arounnd here only really carry the Purina or the Blue Seal.
I like Sonny on a simple diet....like he is now...just hay...cause I think in the long run it's healthier for him. I know alot of people that swear by grain to keep a horse in shape and/or gain weight on them.....and I know alot of people that believe hay will grain more weight and keep it on easier
Oh, if I could keep Denny healthy on just a diet of hay I would.. but he's so skinny he needs all the help he can get.
He's an OTTB and I am very careful not to make him hot, so not all grains make horses hot, that is a big misjudgement.
I guess I was just confused as to why you were asking about how to keep a horse "fit" without exercising a lot and without changing his diet? If nothing changes, then he will not become more fit...
