free choice means all he wants ... if you throw out hay and he is eating it all before the next feeding you need to increase the amount you are feeding ... free choice means all he can/will eat

if you have pasture it will be less then if he doesn't

Most recommend 1 to 1 1/2 lbs for a "idle" or lightly used horse ...

If you need help finding one let me know your zip code

many feed stores have NO clue when you say ration balancer so you are better off knowing what is avaiable to you and asking for it by name or tellign them to order it IF they don't carry it
