dumb Alfalfa pellets/cube question
OK, dumb question time!! I have never used a alfalfa or any other type pellet/cube that you have to soak. Could someone explain how and why? In detail!!!!
I am getting a new mare next week and that is what she is use to. I hate to ask really dumb questions to the owner.
I have always feed a sweetfeed or whole oats or a pelleted whole feed so I really need answers. I also have just used grass hay, have never used alfalfa hay, if I use that how much do I give. I had heard that it should be given in small bits.
We travel some to ride and I was told the alfalfa cubes will take the place of hay. If so that would be great that we wouldn't have to haul bales!
