i couldn't find a "dry" cup at the store? How big of a difference is it? ((used household cup)) I gave her about a Cup today 3 times a day today, had no problems. I want to order this, this should really help me measure out everything perfectly, I HATE the normal "feed" 3 quart scoops, Since if I ever have to tell someone to feed any of my animals, its hard to understand what I mean by "scoop" I think this would really help.

What I thought was measuring out at two pounds for the Nutrena Safe Choice Senior, was actually only 1-3/4 pounds
I have to feed the Arab three times daily so he would have been getting shorted 3/4 of a pound of feed every day.
I think the rice bran weighs less than the Senior feed but suffice it to say, what I thought was two pounds was less when I put it on the postage scale
None of that matters with my three Walking Horses who all need to lose weight but, if you add up 3/4 pound daily for a month, plus whatever the difference was in the rice bran it adds up to a big amount, when a horse is thin and needs to gain.
I can re-weigh my Nutrena Safe Choice Senior, the timothy pellets and the timothy/alfalfa cubes if you'd like. That way you will know how many ounces in your "liquid" cup it takes to get a dry one pound measure and you can mark the cup
