Sand is everywhere over here. So instead of giving them sand clear, BO gives everyone a bran mash once a month...she insists it does the same job.
Now I have been reading and am aware that bran is not all too good for them. I also know that she feeds them nowhere near the amount of bran mash needed for it to actually clear anything.
I just...would rather avoid another argument if possible. Is a once a month feeding of the bran harmless? Or do I need to stand up and insist she feed them something else while the other horses get "branned". Keep in mind she is one of those people who hates to "leave the other horses out", so she needs to feed them something while the other horses get it.
Any suggestions? Is there something they can be fed instead of the bran mash that would do sandclear's job, or can I add sandclear to anything?
For the record, the two horses are an easy keeper coming 10 yo mare and a 13 yo arab gelding who came to us underweight and is in the process of regaining condition.
