Yearling Feeding Question
So a few of you know about my yearling ginger and what she went through.. I had her up to a decent weight, and then we moved her to her permanent residence.. which she became alot more active and started growing like a leaf and the weight slowly started coming back off again.. so I contacted the vet and she said to increase her food ( which is purina ultium growth) form 3/4 a scoop in feeding to a heaping full scoop and see how it goes for a week.. which I did.. she gained some back but not much.. so the vet told me to try giving her alfalfa cubes, but since she was young to give her the pellets first till she is used to it.. and to watch her and see if she finishes all her food.. which was fine.. wife said she was near feed store so she would pick it up.. and I told her to ask about dosage and if I should still feed hay.. she told the guy that ginger got between 5-6 lbs of grain 3 times a day and didn't ask about the hay.. I told her no way its more like 1.5-2 lbs a scoop full if she ate 15+ pounds of that food a day she wouldnt be thin.. also should I keep feeding her hay as well as the alfalfa pellets?.. and he said feed her 1/2 a scoop for what she was eating.. but its a lot less then what she told him.. so should I give her more or leave it at half a scoop and see how it goes?
Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.
