And yet, another RB question from AQHSam.
Or maybe I should use
I decided to purchase Purina Enrich Plus (replaces E32). According to the label, I can feed between 0.1% and 0.25% of the horse's body weight 2 times a day. I have chosen to go with the 0.1% ratio for the time being so at 900 lbs, that is 9 oz per day.
I modified a scoop to provide a single serving of 4.5 oz.
Sounds good. However, I am having a hard time providing Sam with his two servings. He is only getting a single serving per day. I feed it by adding it to his feed bin and then tossing roughly 4 oz of timothy hay pellets on top. The timothy pellets slow him down. The EPlus is like horsey crack to him.
At 9oz, would I really be causing issues if I fed him the full serving at once?
I did send Purina an email asking their advice on a single serving dose. But, I thought I would also put it out here for discussion.
I'll report back what Purina has to say about it. Does anyone have any opinions on this?
