This is how I feed my horses. They get just some chopped alfalfa hay with flax and a vit/min supplement. My hard working guys get some alfalfa pellets and I have two that need some "umph" that also get some plain whole oats. I, personally, do not like to feed any grain or horse feed. Ingredients like corn, wheat middlings, grain sweepings, grain byproducts, molasses, etc. are all just fillers and can even have negative effects on a horse's health (if you feed more than a cup ).
