Ok, so I was at EquiFest today and decided to stop and talk to the guy at the Phoenix Company booth. I told him how big Aires is (16.1-16.2hh and around 1500lbs) and how much he eats (he gets alfalfa for dinner and grass hay for breakfast and lunch, and generally eats about 2.5 bales per week). I explained that several people have mentioned that he could use some weight, but that he's not in horrible condition. He's not going through a growth spurt (at least not right now lol), so his lack of condition is partly needing weight and partly needing muscle. I also explained that he's green broke and we will be getting into more serious work in the next week or so.
The rep seemed to be of the opinion that Renew Gold would be ideal for Aires to help him put on weight/condition, especially since he's still growing.
Any opinions on Renew Gold?
We're sorely limited on what we have available in my area, which is kind of weird, since we are in ranching country. However, most people in my area don't feed anything other than alfalfa and grass, along with grazing. Where Aires is, there is no grazing available (hopefully that will change when we get our own place and I can bring him home). Posted via Mobile Device
