    I feed my horse grain anytime im there, I might get attacked for this, but when im tacking up I sometimes let her eat it then too. She's not one of those colicky horses though, I could never do that with my old horse.

    Is this rule void when the grain in question is alfalfa pellets or beet pulp or timothy cubes and such? And the supplements, of course.
