I recently got 12 bales of Canadian Hay, and the guy I bought it from says that it is alfalfa hay. I've been told that alfalfa is really bad for horses.
My 4-H leader claims that it is horrible for horses.
I'm Currently feeding my 850 pound 17 y/o Morgan 11oz of Blue Seal Vintage Sweet and Blue Sea trotter, and i'm Mixing about a half flake of the Alfalfa hay with regular 1st cut grass hay. I feed him this twice a day.
I also feed my 400 pound 18 y/o Shetland/welsh pony cross 5 ounces of the sweet fead and pellet mix, with a little less than a half a flake of the alfalfa.
Do you thing that's an appropriate diet for them?
Also my alfalfa hay looks like this -
