By keeping the protien low you are stopping her ability to build good muscle... with the PROPER amino acid profile she can't

Ouch you are kinda in the middle of nowhere

Triple Crown go with thier senior or TC30% with beet pulp or alfalfa pellets/cubes for extra calories
Store Locator - Southern States Cooperative

Purina (they would be my LAST choice)
Go with the Enrich 32 with beet pulp or alfalfa pellets/cubes for calories
Purina Mills Horse

Thanks for all the info everybody!!! I have been buying a really cheap sweet feed....So I guess the difference in your horses weight is a big thing when you compare a quality feed to a cheap feed? Also when you say alfalfa pellets/cubes, does that mean one is pretty much as good as the other. Because where I buy my feed the pellets are a lot less expensive than the cubes.

And yes I am so in the middle of nowhere. It has good things about it, but also bad things. That's why I'm having trouble finding a decent saddle that fits. Nowhere to go hardly. :(

I use pellets because I am using them for calories only, when you are tryign to replace hay or pasture you want to use cubes.

I woudl not worry too much about a saddle until you get the weight where it needs to be with proper protien her back/withers are going to be changing so what fits now most likely WON"T fit when the weight is there. The saddle you ahve may fit when the weight gets up there too

She needs at least a 100 pounds on her. I would even think about putting a saddle on her at this point it could do some serious damage to her back.

When you say you feed one "block" of hay how many pound is that? Do you mean a bale or a flake?
