Protein percent in feed
I just moved my horse to a new barn and his feed was switched. He is getting feed with 12% protein, and it is just not working for him. He's dropping weight and is lethargic and I'm looking into switching it. I'm going to talk to the BO to see about getting him an extra couple flakes of hay a day, and I found a feed that seems to be okay, but I'm a bit put off by the protein level, which is at 28%. Is this too much to feed him? He's a 16.1hh thoroughbred, between 1000 and 1100 pounds.
