I'm new to this whole forum thing, so bare with me abd try and get to this.
I have two horses on free choice grass hay, and pasture which seems to be diminishing, as well as salt. I was feeding alfalfa cubes and sweetfeed to them morning and night. A friend recommended that I switch to beet pulp and whole oats because it doesn't have the same additives the sweet feed does. He told me the amount, but it is significant higher then what I was feeding them.
My one horse had worms when I recieved him. Since then he has been vet checked and his teeth were done. He did lose weigh during the time and I hope to put it back on him before it gets to cold out. I don't know how much my scoop holds but my friend suggested three scoops whole oats and three scoops beet pulp, morning and night, watered down, then drop it down to two and two once I am happy with his weigh.
My second one is at a good weight, a little over what he should be but with winter I as not to concerned about him losing any. The only thing is he is really stubborn and acts out a lot. I currently feed him half a scoop of oats and half a scoop of beet pulp.
Here are my questions.
For my first one, what weight in oats and beet pulp would you be feeding as I want to compare to my current amount.
For my second one, what amount would you feed him, our would you take him of f of them completely (our just beet pulp). My friend who suggested this food recommended I stop feeding him this due to him acting out.
Sorry for the long message. Hope ii have everything thanthanks for your input.
