No alfalfa, because it apparently is very easy for them to get stones, and founder, no grains either, just bermuda and orchard I think. I've ridden a couple of her Fjords, and they were very fun rides. Not exactly my breed of choice, but definitely friendly, and sweet natured. Hope you have lots of fun with her.
Oh yes lol I learned to ride on my friend's parents' Fjord gelding when I was a kid & have always LOVED their looks & temperment
I've always wanted one but have never had the chance to buy one over the years.
It was actually kind of a fluke that I got Bella at all, as I traded my Quarab mare for her & I had met her owner over the internet when I did a painting for her. Sometimes things work out funny like that though!
