Loose Hay vs Cubes/Pellets advice please
I'm moving my horse and the only places I've found feed 20 lbs alfalfa cubes and that's it.
My horse is on 3 flake grass 1 flake alf and doesn't do well if I feed him straight alf hay.
The barns say that they cubes are different quality and thus are easier for the horse to eat than alf hay. The cubes also have a binder in them.
If I move my horse here will he be okay?
He has never had a cube diet, he is older, 19-20, I just want him to have the best quality of life and am not sure if I am over reacting to the alf cubes thing or if it really is the cheapest feed out there for a reason....
He would be in a pasture with other horses and thus I couldn't too easily feed just him what I'd like to.
