Comet gets fat off air.
Bravo was 300 pounds underweight and is now a normal weight.
Splash was 100 pounds underweight and is now a normal weight.
We have had Bravo since August and Splash for a month.
We give them a round bale of 30% alfalfa and 70% grass to free feed off of.
Also been feeding twice a day beet pulp and Sentinel (varying amounts per horse).
Now that Splash and Bravo are normal weight, I want to take them down to very little feed or none at all. They are very lightly worked and I have always figured they didn't need anything but grass/hay in those circumstances.
What are thoughts on this? I have cut Bravo down to about half of what he was getting because he was putting on too much weight. I am watching to see if his weight holds with less feed.
I think I am a little afraid to take him off cause of the condition he was in when we got him. He was pretty bad off. The beet pulp has really helped pack the weight on.
