I don't even get how that quote for molasses works as your argument. I'm actually quite surprised that you don't appreciate that a sugary 'lolly' may not be healthy. Interesting that they mention oats are better than corn - duh - as according to most nutritional sources I've studied, corn's one of the worst(but still commonly fed in some parts) grains for horses. I never said oats specifically were so terrible anyway(as far as grain goes, I don't think they're bad), only starchy feed, of which ALL grains are high. Anyway, I personally like to get my nutritional info from a knowledgeable equine nutritionist - independent of feed co's - and that's where I'd suggest anyone goes who wants facts on feeds.
Donatel, if you're wanting to make something that appeals to your human horsey friends
, you could try a grain free 'ration balancer' or such, mushed up with grated carrot & then cut into shapes & redried in a slow oven??
