Alwaysbehind, sorry, your right about the name of the feed. My bad. I know she is getting enough hay cuz I have sat and watched them eat. Takes them about 2 hrs, maybe less in between rests to eat most of it. Especially the more dominant mares. Our hay isnt the best quality anyway. Mainly grass and I think it sat too long before it was cut. So that was my main reason to start her on grain for the nutrients lacking in the hay. But to put more weight on her thats why I asked about the beet pulp. And dont ask me the size of my scoop lol lol,. Its plastic and its a scoop,. :)???!! Quart? Speed Racer? Does your scoop say on it the size? You know what I will do, I will take a measuring cup (1 cup) and see how many cups fill it to the top and let you know that. Sound ok? :) Yeah, I didnt soak it this morning and she chewed it fine. I will experiment the soaking of it next. Would you upload a pic of your arab? How many hands is he and his weight. I'm such a freak, sorry. Thank you for your advice guys, I think I am finally getting thru to my in law about the reasons for the way I feed. She doesnt think I do it right but I always research before I do something. If it isnt going to kill my horse but possibly help her, why not try? Right?
