    I'm not going to reply anymore, it's useless trying to explain these things to a person who has their mind set on something.

    Ok you know what? That's it. I'm leaving this forum. People like you make me so angry. I don't CARE If you don't reply anymore. Let me tell you this: WOULDN'T you be angry if someone 1) Called you a child! 2) Told you that you're going to HURT your horse? 3) Said it wasn't safe to switch grain??? Goodbye horse forum. I'm joining a different one. IF I join another one that is. Thank you to all my favorite posters who gave me great advice! Wallaby, smrobs, Dreamcatcher arabians, and mhfoundation quarters.

    I wasn't trying be rude or mean. I just simply stated my opinion on it and what others have pointed out too. What did I say that wasn't the truth? And why are you so upset about it? No, I wouldn't be angry, I respect others opinions and listen to their advice. I take in all of the information handed to me and think it through, not pitching a fit and getting upset for no reason.

    Upset over nothing? Yeah ok sure. I was upset over nothing *rolls eyes* Whatever you want to believe. BYE HORSE FORUM. You can pat yourself on the back now, because ''the ignorant child who doesn't take advice'' is leaving.

    Because you're a big meany head, suggesting that an easy keeper in no work doesn't need grain :P Because we all love obese, foundering, colicy horses, right??

    To the OP, DrumRunner is right. Needlessly feeding your horse grain for "fun" or "to experiment", even a ration balancer, when he is an easy keeper and not being ridden enough to burn the excess calories, you can seriously injure or kill the horse. Overfeeding him will lead to obesity, insulin resistance, founder, colic and death. In the interest of your horse I would not feed him anything extra. Thousands of horses support themselves on hay and water alone and live to a ripe old age.

    Anabel, I'm not saying those things because I disagree with her. I'm saying them because I'm NOT feeding him grain for fun, and I'm not feeding it to experiment. She called me a child and said I'm going to hurt my horse, and said that I'm experimenting with him in a dangerous way, and I'm not!

    Gallop, you have 97 carrots! How can you leave? I can hardly keep 3!

    But seriously, while I understand that you are trying to maybe improve your horse and find out what seems to be work for him, it sounds like he is getting along just fine in this department. I honestly wouldn't even give him the 2 lbs and see how he does. If you notice a dip, then bring it back.

    That being the case, what this does it free up your money that you want to invest in the grain and put it towards something else that you might be interested in trying or buying. Maybe a new saddle blanket, boots, bridle.... lots of other fun things.

    Thank you BaileyJo. I'll consider staying I guess. I was pretty angry and just needed to step away from the computer for a little bit. I'm guessing that a majority of you didn't read the comment where I said I forgot to say that he is a tad underweight, but I'm switching him over to free choice hay in a few weeks.

    Our base feed is SafeChoice. We can feed a cup full to those horses that don't 'need' grain but would tear the stall down while their buddies are getting a.m. Grain. We can also feed pounds of it several times a day to a horse that need calories that won't make him hyper.
