I haven't been around much. I have been going through some life changes, one of them being I am moving barns. I am moving for many reasons, but that's not something I would like to discuss.
I am moving to a self-care barn and I will be out once a day to feed.
Now, let me just say, it WILL be once a day. I can not go out twice, I can not pay someone to do it for me. I feel like that is all I need to say on the matter.
Anyway, my horse is a TB. Right now she is thriving and looking wonderful on her current feeding schedule. Of course, I am worried that she may lose weight when being dropped to once a day.
She currently gets 1 1/4 3-quart scoop of Stock and Stable and 1 scoop of beet pulp. I knew the weights at one point but do not have the paper with that on them, so all I have are the scoop measurements. She is also on 24/7 pasture and will be at the new place.
I know I will be making the switch to Safe Choice when we move, which is what I fed before the barn changed to Stock and Stable, which I do not like. I also plan to continue feeding beet pulp.
My question is, how much is safe to feed her at one feeding? I do not want to overload her and risk tummy troubles, but I also want to keep her weight on. Should I consider supplementing something? Should I just feed her the same amount, just once a day, and see how she does before I change anything?
Thanks for any advice.
