At the moment, I soak his hay in hot water to get the sugars out. He's on Wellsolve L/S grain. He only gets about 3 pounds of feed daily (1 pound 3 times a day). It ends up being about 2 quarts. He's on Farrier's Formula and Quiessence... and Thyro-L (which we are weaning him off of). He's at a good weight now. He was overweight. Now I just have to figure out how to stabalize his diet so he doesn't lose any more weight.
Personally, I don't want to increase the amount of grain he gets. And I'm pretty sure that he won't eat molasses-free beet pulp. Should I add bran to his feed? Or is corn oil better? I think that I heard something about corn oil not being great for them.
He's been on day turnout and no riding for about 4 months... and he's starting to go out all night again on a pretty grass-less paddock this weekend. And I've been allowed to get on him and walk. I'm allowed to start trotting for 5 minutes shortly, too. So is bran what I should add to help him maintain weight... but not have too much sugars? Anyone else have experience with this? If so... do tell!
