Anyway since I have moved my TB to my own barn I have been trying to figure out a perfect feed plan for him. He is under weight but not majorly with a little bit of his ribs showing. Weight tape weighs him at about 960 lbs. And he is in moderate work.
Where I used to board him at they used to have him on a standard full scoop of 12% sweet feed (3 Qt feed scoop) and another scoop (3 Qt feed scoop)of beet pulp x2 a day. Now that i'm researching more on nutrition it is more determind on weight and what not. It is rather obvious. Duh. As of now my horse proably is getting 3 standard scoop (3 Qt feed scoop) of 12% sweet feed and 3 Standard scoop (3 Qt feed scoop) of beet pulp THROUGH OUT THE DAY not all at once. He does not get hot. He did gain some weight but now has seem to stop. I do not want to up his feed anymore!
So therefore is there something else I can feed him to substiute the sweet feed which I have read (correct me if i'm wrong) that sweet feed is really not the best.
So I have been researching rice bran and have heard people are having very good results on it. And having to feed less then the sweet feed which would make me feel so much better for my horse. What feed plan would you guys suggest for my under weight OTTB?
