a lot of great sugestions i'm already implementing them!
OK I started with the Probiotics last night, is that a daily thing?
Went to the feed stores and I guess I'm going to have to try some of the bigger feed stores in one of the larger cities or have the feed shippen in to me.
Not one of the 3 feed stores in my little town caries anything except Purina and no one carries the Ultima (or would order it for me).
I'm going to try the smart packs ordering online and I've tracked down a source of Alfalfa hay that's 12.00 a bale, one question is the alfalfa pellets and the hay interchangeable? I mean the smaller pellets that are larger then feed pellets but way smaller then the cubes? Does that count as "roughage or concentrate"?
I've switched her to 3x a day feedings instead of 2 x daily so that should help... geez it feels like I'm out there feeding her every few hours LOL.
Finally the beet pulp: what is that about? Is that an additive or something that should already be in a good feed?
Been giving her olive oil but I think I'll switch to rice bran oil."
Thanks to everyone who gave great tips I really appreciate it. I've never had a skinny horse before and I HATE it. I feel like everyone who drives by my house it thinking "man why are those people starving their horses?"
I take a lot of pride in my babies and want them to look good and be healthy.
