My 6 yo QH/TWH (Guinness) is currently on 2c of 12% pellets twice a day. His weight is perfect, temperment is great-the whole picture. He does great on it.
Here is the issue: I will be moving back to VA next week, and taking him with me. The barn I am going to feeds 12% Sweet feed. I will take a bag of pellets to transition him over for sure.
Do I keep the amounts the same? I have great anxiety about sweet feed. I have not had a horse on it in YEARS! Should I try it and see how he is? Or, should I not chance it and be pushy (I hardly know these people, and I try to be a "go along with the program" kind of boarder) and provide my own pellets for the next 6 months? In April he will be moving back to NY again and back to pellets. I hate to keep switching....Will it hurt him?
What would you do? I don't want to be a demanding boarder, and nowhere I board are they "know-nothings" by any means. I just want what is best for my horse.
Thanks in advance-I am truly perplexed!
