1-2 flakes where I board is a "oh I wandered by and gave the horses a snack". I would quadruple his hay and if he is gaining too much weight, cut back on the grain.
Horses are designed to graze on grass, hay and the like. Not get 2 giant meals of grain and nada in-between.
^^he gets a TON of alfalfa pellets...i was just saying flakes wise he gets that much...as well as more than the suggested amount of purina enrich 32 in the middle as well as supplements...plenty of horses (most of which are also rescues) are on the same feeding schedule and don't have his problem.
