Some Questions about Alfalfa Cubes???
Ok so recently we have been suspecting that My OTTB might have Ulcers. So The vet is coming out on friday. He was gettting way to much grain, and I'll admitt that but he was 200lbs underweight when we got him. I didn't realize the problems with feeding to much grain, and I was going by what our old vet had told up to feed him..
So in the mean time we have dropped his grain down to 1 1/2 scoops twice a day and started feeding him alfalfa cubes so that he doesn't lose weight.
My questions are are there any risks with feeding alfalfa cubes other than choking?
Can you mix it with his grain?
Also can you soak them too long?
And I'm still getting used to them so I accidently soaked too much not realizing that they swell up so much, is it ok if I feed the left over to him the next day or will it go bad. I didn't give it to him because I wasn't sure.
