    Amount of hay pellets to feed?

    My new horse is an easy keeper, and has never gotten grain.

    He certainly noticed that in the AM and PM, other horses were getting something different (the stalls are like temp stalls - separate by bars).. he would sniff in the direction of the other stalls and ignore his hay at feeding until he realized he wasn't getting what they were.

    Soo.. I bought him some straight Standlee Timothy Grass Hay Pellets. The ONLY ingredient is sun-cured timothy grass hay, and yet, for some reason, he is OBSESSED WITH IT and looks for it every morning now! (Oh no.. I've created a monster).

    I have been giving him a quart soaked AM and PM, but now wondering if that is too much.

    Any thoughts on it?

    I would just give him a handful (literally) of grain. If you want to feed pellets 1lb = 1lb or hay. If he's not fat it's not too much but if he doesn't need it I'd be inclined to give him less, or as I said a handful of what the others are getting.

    Just enough to keep him busy for as long as his neighbors are eating. And I'd give the hay pellets , no sweetfeed or pelleted hard feed, just as you do
