I have some regular grass hay...has a few weeds. My horse is a SUPER easy keeper. If she isn't on pasture I give her 4 flakes(they are two string bales) and if she is on pasture I give her only 2 flakes in the evening along with some rice bran and her probiotic.
Bambi and Autumn are new but they are getting quite a bit of hay since they are skinny,rice bran,gentle balance LMF,Alfalfa cubes(only like 10 and they are split into sections),and we also have performance LMF we were told to give but in small doses. Bambi is kinda hyper so only autumn gets it.
I like to get the local stuff here. I have wanted to try orchard grass. I pay about $5 a bale for grass hay and max I would pay is $10 a bale which is usually 3 string large bales. Afalfa is cheaper right now then grass and I love the smell of alfalfa but my horse is on a strict diet..she only gets a few cubes as treats....alfalfa is good for winter and for hard keepers it helps but also it's very rich.
