Too much grain?
So Moo use to be on some weird agway brand pellet until I Hae since moved him to a new barn. Now I buy my own grain and I have since switched him to Blue Seal brand Sport Formula which is a pellet that is 11.0 Crude Protien and 6.0 Fat and 8.0 Fiber. He isn't in regular work right now and is on a 60+ acre pasture unless the weathers bad then he comes in at night. He was about 200 pounds (give or take) underweight when ingot him and he seems to be doing alot better now. Could still use a couple more pounds. The last time we weigh taped him I wana say he was somewhere between 950-970 pounds. He's 15.2 and pretty slenderly built. If you need a recent picture let me know and I'll get one. :) But anyway he gets fed in the am with hay and at night depending if he goes back out I'll usually give him a flake/ flake an a half. If hes in for the night he gets about 3,4, or 5 flakes depending how cold and crappy it is and how much he has already eaten by the time I am ready to leave the barn. The grass outside is still edable. And they have a round bail outside but it gets moldy quick as they'd rater forage on grass then the bale. He gets like 3/4s a scoop of grain Am and Pm. Here's the scoop to show you how much exactly he gets.
He gets a scoop as high as the handle basically. If anyone has any expierence with these types of scoops where the handle ends inside there's a little platform. He gets grain up to that platform. (if that makes any sence!)
So do you guys think hes getting too much/little grain? He's going into training in February 5x a week. Any supplements you think I should give him? Let me know what you think!
