I have tried the cubes and the shreds... I haven't tried the pellets yet that is probably my next step. My vet keeps saying not to worry that he will put on the added weight once the spring grass starts growing, but he looks like crap to me. What makes it worse is he seems to be making the others just as picky! I have tried soaking with cold water, soaking with hot water and they all keep looking at me like I am crazy. I have never seen such picky horses! My first horse would eat anything that didn't eat her first!
