I am getting my mare back up to her ideal lbs and I am doing it by beetpulp/grain/alfaa pellets and free feeding hay.
I have told two diffrent ppl that I AM NOT GOING TO FEED HER BREAD! I have been rude about it. I have seen a horse choke on it, so no. I know that it can also cauze colic. I know it will work IF you let it dry out and you can look it up. I always look at it if you want to lose lbs and do it fast it comes back faster, and gaining it is the same way slow and steady.
Sorry just got donetelling them for the umteeth time she is mine I am doing it my way.
