I have a 3 1\2 year old who I bought around 6 months ago. He was very underweight when I got him so a few people suggested putting him on purina fat\fibre. He had been getting around 7 lbs per day, but was just dropped to 5 lbs a day as he's up to a good weight now.
I had a family member come down recently who was appalled that I was feeding him fat\fibre. She said it was a crappy food and no good. She started to go one about a friend of hers who went to school for horse nutrition and was trying to tell me that she says some type of sweet feed food is better (can't remember the brand name though).
Is the food he's on now really that bad? I thought sweet feed was a no-no for horses that get hot? Is there another type of food he should be on instead?
I'm just a little confused by the whole situation.
