hey how are you,
well at the moment they are getting hard feed morning and night, for morning feed they get 1 and a half scoop of lookout...(lupins 15% ,lucerne ,oats there is more but i cant remember..lol) 1 scoop of chalf, half of lucerne, half of gold N B and 4 cups of speedybeat...(soaked in water)
night time is pretty much the same but 1 and a half of chalf and then all there extras.
i never use to feed then hard feed in the morning but scince i cant get a hold of any hay i have to use what i can keep them going on till i get some.(hay is really hard to get down here)
umm i tend to feed them on this feed because lookout is high in fat, Gold N B has vitimans and minarals proten etc all the things a horse needs.
lucerne and chalf well we all no bout that lol.
And the speedybeat more for a filling while they dont have hay.

He has been on a blander feed as last year he was on the verge of laminitis- I used to feed oats but they contain to much sugar. I also used to feed "milo mix" which is white & green chaff with molases. Since then he gets much less sugar and starch in his diet.

1 bisciut meadow hay

4 scoops white chaff- Filler
1 scoop green chaff
1/2 cup of white millet seed- keeps topline and muscles
20 sunflower seeds- cause when he first started having them he got a little diarhea(sp?) so we are slowly building them up, for his coat
1/3 cup of Herbal Horse Vitalis which is a mixture of garlic granules, rosehip granules, brewer's yeast, seaweed meal, mudgee dolomite and sunflower kernels this has made him healthier- he is very shiny, bright eyed etc. I used to fed groom but changed to vitalis and i'm really happy we did
A half cap of linseed oil
a good splash of apple cider vinegar
I also wet down the feed to prevent choking/minimize dust from chaffs
