I'm having a hard time finding out information about this online. I swear somewhere along the line I've heard that sweet feed contributes to horses being too "hot" especially when they're not being worked regularly. I looked at a gelding last night who had maybe been ridden 3 times this summer and understandably, he was full of beans. They have him on a 10% sweet feed mix, but the guy obviously hasn't been worked with much.
Is sweet feed generally a good grain to be feeding? Can someone educate me on it and other grain suggestions? I do have a lot of horse nutrition/health books I just got from the library that I plan on scouring, but I've never had a horse in my care before and thought the forum would be a good jumping off point.
