Corn is one of the worst feeds to feed to horses yeah it puts weight on them but its still not good for them. Like I said not healthy.
I did oats for years and it caught up to me this year my gelding is currently laminatic. Yep he looked great fat shiney and picture of health. So think what you want sooner or later your current feeding practice will catch up to you mark my words.
I had the same thinking on feed too didnt want to hear about it though oh its worked for years. I fed 6 pounds of oats a day sometimes up to 10 pounds a day. My horses are worked hard so needed it. So yeah I now wish I had listened and changed my feed program.
Iam now paying a huge price for it in vet bills the stress of taking care of a laminatic horse. My horses soundness is at stake might be sound again might not. You can justify it away that everbody else feeds it so must be good.....Wrong!!!
So carry on keep feeding corn and oats yeah your horses look good. So did mine so what ever iam done telling you your not going to listen so do what you want.
Did I ask for a smart remark? No. No need to get all rude & crap. I've fed all my horses this way for 12 years. Never had one go lame, & I've never fed them that much a day. He's eating mostly hay. Same for the others. Hop off if all you're going to do is be rude. Thank you.
