There's a new 3 year old filly at my barn, and I have the good fortune of being the one doing most of her training. We've only had her for a week, and as of now she hasn't been getting grain regularly. Some mornings she'll get one quart of a Strider/Charger mix, and some mornings she won't get any grain. And she never gets grain at night. (This isn't my decision, it's the barn owner's).
Anyways, in the week she's been with us she's already filled out a lot, just from having consistent grass/hay during the day. She definitely needs the added energy grain provides, but we're worried if she's fed enough grain for added energy she'll gain weight like crazy. Anyone have suggestions for a low-carb type grain we could give her that would increase her energy but not her weight?
Any help would be appreciated :)
