I usually throw a handful of the new in the old, mix it well and up it over about ten days, cutting the old out as I go. I do the same with hay if I get a different type.
I hope your girl will be okay without grain, tho I have my doubts...have yet to see a TB who does well on pasture/hay without any grain
IMO they are bred for early maturity and fast growth. Therefore they require a rather intensive diet. Just "greens" alone probably won't do it. But, it's certainly worth a try

Well, I intend on feeding her a mix of rice bran, beet pulp and alfalfa pellets.. but if I could find a good quality grain, I could put that in there too. If I could find a grain with vitamins and minerals added in, that'd work even better.

I'd look for the omega horseshine. It will definitely not hurt her, will make her shiny for sure and contains apart from the flax also yeast, omega 3 fatty acids and several minerals and vitamins. The maker is Omega Fields, they can most likely tell you where to get it. It's around 45$ but lasts a good 3 months. Like I said above, I'm very pleased with it, I noticed a difference in appearance after 3 days.
Grains...there are tons out there I used nutrena life design senior for adding weight and Purina strategy for keeping it on. You can also use straight grains, but watch out for oats, TB's have a tendency to go crazy on oats. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt

So the omega stuff is a grain?

I'm mainly just looking for as minimally processed grains as possible. I'd like to stay away from ingredients like oats and corn and such.. which was another reason for the rice bran/beet pulp pellets/alfalfa pellets.

No, its flaxseed with yeast and a tiny amount of ground oats. And loaded with minerals und vitamins. It's a weightbuilding supplement who puts a real nice shine on, helps to get rid of sand, improves skin and hooves, mane and tail growth is better and due to the omega 3's is healthy in general.
And no, im not selling it

Okay, thank you! I'll probably talk to the vet about it, but I'll keep it in mind. :)

Checked out the feed store today and they have all the feed I was looking for! The girl working said they always have it in stock so that's great. :) I'm thinking now of doing rice bran, alfalfa pellets and a good grain.. plus a joint supplement and some sort of vitamin/mineral supplement.

I believe so! My dad is calling the seller tomorrow night to further discuss Indie and he's calling the vet in the afternoon about sending us the vet report! Plus, my instructor has given me permission to board her there.

Although the boarding has become a huge dilemma.. we can either have her ten minutes away with no coach, or half an hour away with a coach. If I had it my way, my coach could come up there and teach but apparently the BO there doesn't like other people coming up and teaching. :/
