Ugh. My brain is hurting from all the research i'm trying to take in on horse nutrition... I've never been good at this stuff.

There is a chance that my horse is tying up (I say chance because it hasn't been diagnosed by a vet, but has been suggested to me by someone I trust) so i'm in the processof changing his diet. My plan is to get him off grain, and get the lowest NSC levels I can.

He was on a feed called Vitality Plus; It had a mix of grains, chaff, pellets, vits/mins and molasses.

So far I have got him onto a mix of Speedi-Beet and white chaff. I will soon be adding some Copra to make it tastier and add some more energy. I was hoping to buy CoolStance Copra, but was unable to source any near me, so have had to buy a Copra meal called Nutracool. Does anyone have experience with this brand? I can't find a website or anything to get information on it, so I am a bit worried...

Also, he is being fed a biscuit of lucerne hay at night. I wn't be able to switch him off it for another month or two, so does anyone have any ideas/opinions on soaking lucerne to reduce the NSC levels? How long do I soak it for?
