We switched over a little while ago from hay (grass and 50/50) to Stable Mix for our 3 horses.
The horses LOVE the stable mix, but I've heard not to feed them only stable mix. Their weight is good, and their coats are shiny with just being fed the SB.
They are 16, 17, and 21. We ride the 16 and 17 yr olds mostly on trail and do occasional arena work. Also, the 16 yr old has ran barrels in the past. We don't ride the 21 yr old very often. She has a hard time keeping on weight and has arthiritis in her front knee from running barrels in her past.
What is your opinion on feeding just SB or feed SB with hay?? (During the winter I want to keep them warm!!) I'm also looking into feeding supplements to them especially since they are getting older. I've looked into smartpack? Ideas??? Thanks!!! :)
