Purina is their licensed brand. They also make their own blend of horse feed.
I am very lucky that my guys will hold their weight with just grazing. They really don't need the grain. It's more of a treat for ME.
I suppose its the same as giving my kids a piece of candy every now and again. Except I'm giving the horses their candy everyday.
I am in extreme Northern Arkansas, TXHorseMom. We will have good grass untill late October. Then we really need to get hay out there for them.
Maybe I'm worrying too much....After all it IS the begining of fall and they sure do look like they have packed on their winter weight.
I agree that puting weight on is harder, we got these guys last year in October so this is the first year where they have had good grazing and the feed. Last year at this time they were ribby. So...I guess I'll go to the feed store and see what they have on the shelves. I have just been letting my hubby bring home the feed when he comes home from work. My grandfather always fed sweet feed and I guess over the course of this year I have learned so much that I didn't know!!!! Sometimes my head just spins!!
I can almost guarntee that these horses won't tolerate a grazing muzzle. I can't keep a halter on Twister...He is a halter houdini...good thing he's easy to catch! And Dumas is headshy and I have worked SO hard this year to get him over that. I guess I'm concerned that Dumas will get "pissy" with me. Do you think that a grazing muzzle would irritate him to the point of not liking us again? Or am I being paranoid?
