My horses do great on the alfalfa pellets - they aren't worked very hard, though. On the days that they do get worked, I cheat a bit and throw in a quart of plain crimped oats. They think they are getting a treat!
We have a couple of high strung horses that will actually lose weight on grain - it just makes them more hyper, and I guess they just "worry" the weight off! We have one really nasty spooky mare that we don't dare even give alfalfa to. She's stuck with timothy hay pellets, because even the alfalfa is too hot for her!
