Question Feed question

Just got a 9 yo saddlebred, only had her for 1 week now. She has been eating Solution pellets 14/6. Expensive and hard to find. I also have a quarterhorse and pony who eat Bartlett pellets maintenance. Going to attempt to switch her to bartlett too. Nervous about changing feeds, also have equalizer for the bartlett. My other 2 have had absolutely no weight problems. Advise appreciated.

Make sure you make the change slowly. I recommend to take away a handful of the Solution pellets, and replace that with a handful of the Bartlett pellets every 3 days or so. If your horse starts to have colicky symptoms call the vet.

Hi,

Yes, change feed gradually, over a couple of weeks. Don't hard feed if it isn't necessary. Avoid high starch/sugar/grain feeds & dish out their daily ration little & often rather than just a couple of large meals daily.
