As I said, I'll go back to the good old days now. I used to feed soaked alfalfa pellets, a little wheat bran for the Ca:Ph ratio, oats for who could handle them, barley and flaked corn, 50 grams each soy and flax for the shine, a little oil and half servings of a vit/ min supplement, along with good grasshay. Everybody had his/ her ration and looked good. No metabolic problems ever. Horses were well fed, but not fat.
That time the only sweet feed available was "Reform Oats", rolled oats, wheat bran and lots of molasses, used only to get weight on a super hard keeper or to get sick horses to eat.
In the UK we can get micronized oats, barley, beans, wheat, peas, soya and maize (corn) which seems to be a lot more digestible and I always fed a mix of these according to need with bran, sugar beet and chopped hay/oat straw. You can do a really good job of feeding different amounts to each horse depending on what they do and what they need
I've only seen crimped type grains over here and a lot of it just gets pooped straight out without being digested as its still almost whole
I'm thinking about buying a boiler of some sort so I can cook the stuff myself

Yeah, in Germany too.
I used to boil barley in winter and feed it warm....a real treat for them. One of my boarders in Italy worked for a TB breeder and used to bring leftovers from their Saturday mash. They cooked all, whole oats, barley and corn, plus flax and added bran. So my barn got a taste of racehorse life once a week. No digestive upsets ever, by the way.

Nope just a regular float. Should only need a power float every few years.

By the way mls, is there a reason you seem to be picking out things that I say and questioning them and/or ripping them apart? You commented on a portion of a sentence that had nothing to do with the original intent of this thread to do nothing more than to once again question the things that I do. Starting to wonder if you think you know who I am.
