Here's a website that might help...

Horse Nutrition Explained

And this will help explain ration balancer and some brands that might be in your area...

Ration Balancer

I have both of my boys on Enrich 32... right now they're getting 1/2lb in the morning with 1/2 alfalfa pellets and 1/2 lb at night with 1/2 alfalfa pellets....

When I am working them I keep them at the same... 1lb if I see that they might be loosing a little more weight then I'd like the I add beet pulp or you can add in rice bran.....

Or up the RB...

Which is why pellets are a better all around option. Less can be fed as they break down and are utilized by the horse.
