I find it interesting that more people like the pellets than the cubes. I tried the timothy/alfalfa pellets once when they went on sale. One of my mares would not eat them, she sifted all her safechoice pellets out and left nothing but the hay pellets.
I prefer to feed alfalfa cubes, soaked. Typically I will gather the feed (safechoice) and supplements and while they eat that, I let the alfalfa cubes soak. I just fill a bucket with the cubes and run cold water from the hose over them. While that is soaking, I go about my normal horsey chores. In the winter, I will use warm water. It normally only takes 5-10 min. for my girls to gobble down their feed, and then I give them the cubes. I haven't had a problem with choke as of yet.
The pellets do seem more convenient, but like I said one of my girls will not eat them. They also have round bales free choice all day long plus grazing, and I only feed once per day in the afternoon after it has cooled down. I like the Standlee hay company which is sold at our local TSC. I think the hay cubes and/or pellets is an excellent way to ensure your horse is receiving adequate forage.
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift-that's why it's called the present.
