I feed my easy keepers 1/2 to 1 scoop (3qt feed scoop) of chopped alfalfa hay (1/2-1 lb) mixed with a vit/min supplement and 1 oz (1/4 cup) of flax meal. They love it and get everything they need from it. I use a custom blend vit/min from Uckele. You can get a good pre-mix from them, Equi-Base grass. Others include SmartPak's SmatVite line, Grand Vite, or horsetech.com's High Point Grass. I like using a supplement as you can adjust the calorie intake without effecting your feed's nutritional values. The flax is optional. I use it because we don't have any grazing and flax is high in Omega 3 fatty acids.

If your rescue came with a large parasite load your boy could have them. That could cause the loose stools. Your vet and you could have already ruled this out. If not you could have your vet do a fecal count.

My fatty gets mixed grass hay, with salt, and no grain, and unfortunately is still a fatty.

Thanks everyone we actually had both of the horses tested for worms and it was negative. And the vet said not to worry about tape worms because of the time of year and they can actually test for them its just a little harder.
