do you have the abilitiy to test your hays??

what is Cool Max pellets and pollard???

normally you see stocking up on horses on high grain diets. but not always... some hays and grassses can be very high and cause issues and without testing there is no way to tell which ones they are

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

not really worth getting it tested as the hay is bought in from different places so the protein levels will be different. a test would be about $95 and the hay roll is $75....not worth it. i'll stick with meadow hay from now on which will rule out feeding lucrene hay to him. ozzie will get it as a treat when he's camping then :) he'll be happy (ozzie is the older horse)

well its been almost a week since the hay roll was put in and the swelling is going right down with lunging and there's only a little bit would think i'd starve them the way they (meaning more the older fatter one that's gutsing the hay roll on a maraton) eat!! hahahaha

That's good He may also be adjusting to the clover hay too. I know it's difficult, but just try to keep your hay type consistent. I believe that will help you far more than keeping him off of one type of hay or another.
