My horse is a fairly easty keeper, but he is in a lot of work so I do supplement him. He eats a good quality 30% alfalfa, grass and fescue hay at 2% of body weight per day ( approx 22 lbs ) spread out over 4 feeds.
I only feed him hard feed once per day. He gets about 1 lb of 50% alfalfa cubes, soaked. 2 lbs of ration balancer ( soy hulls, flax, rice bran ) with a vit/min additive, yeast culture, added selenium. And I add a hoof supplement and a magnesium supplement and a cup of oats.
I have been thinking about switching the magnesium for a complete electrolyte though.
Basically focus on low starch, high fat and then add in things the horse needs. For mine its more protein and the magnesium and biotin.
