I’ve really been wanting to get on FeedXL for quite a while now to make sure Dig is getting everything he needs.
Well, FeedXL is doing an anniversary special/discount join thing so I decided to give it a try…... and can I just brag for a moment please?
I put major amounts of effort into researching what is best for all the animals on my farm, not just my equines, but it can be hard to know when something is slightly off or what needs tweaking. With most other farm animals there is not a nice scientific place to go and have it analyzed like FeedXL.
So I entered all his info with eager
anticipation to see what I was doing right and what I was doing wrong. And I was sooo pleased to read Digby’s reports and see that I have met all his requirements!
Everything hit at least 100% and no flags or concerns.
Well, ok… I have no earthly idea how to measure his salt intake in ounces or grams on a daily basis when he has free access to his block and licks on it like a normal horse. So that was a little off with the suggestion to up his sodium intake with a free access salt block. (duh)
I’m going to go back and see if free choice salt was anywhere in the supplement list because I just couldn’t find it the first time and had to take a wild guess on his intake.
Uh, do you count the licks like the old tootsie pop commercials or what??
How the heck can I accurately measure licks?!
Anyway, I’m just tickled pink and am actually glad for all the times when I have been labeled an “attention to details” kind of person. Ok I confess… usually the word used is “anal” but it always earned me big fat raises too, so it‘s all good.
I may not have a fancy barn, shiny new blingy saddle, hippest riding gear, or snazziest horsey wardrobe, but mamma knows how to feed her babies!
Thanks for indulging me!
