Allergic to Molasses AND Soy beans!!!
I just found out that my horse is allergic to molasses, which wouldn't be such a big deal because I recently switched her from the sweet feed that the barn was giving her to Tribute Essential K, a ration balancer (she's a VERY easy keeper!) that doesn't have any molasses in it. It's been working very well for her (weight-wise she's finally no longer overweight!), but the allergy tests just came back and her major issue was Molasses, but she is also allergic to soy bean.
My question is -- what can I feed an easy keeper who is getting medium to heavy exercise (ridden 4-5 times per week, we Event so maybe 1-2 of those are jumping lessons and the rest flatwork), but who cannot have molasses or soy bean? Any ideas? Anyone else have the same problem? I have a call in to our local feed dealer but just wanted to get some ideas before he gets back to me as well. THANKS!
