Make a Mash Out of Cereal?
I hope this is in the right category... it didn't seem to fit anywhere else.
In our pantry we have a couple of boxes of stale granola... nobody wants to eat it. Can I feed a box of it to Ringo(the 26 yr old QH I lease for the summer) in a mash? I was thinking, boil it in warm water and give it to him.
Each box is about 5.25 cups.
whole grain oats, sugar, crisp rice (rice, sugar, sea sald, malt), whole grain oat flower, sunflower oil, raisins, tapioca syrup, rice maltodextrin, roasted pumpkin seeds, molasses, dried cherries, dried cranberries, sea salt, soy lecithin, vanilla extract, and almonds.
Sounds yummy for a horse, right?? Is there anything in there that could hurt him or cause him to colic, or should I go ahead and boil a bag and feed it to him in a mash?
Should I go ahead and feed it to him?
Hm, maybe you could try it as a treat, but I wouldn't give it to the horse in large amounts.
I wouldn't feed this as a rule, but Eliz(is that a horse or a cow in your avatar??<G>) that it may be OK as a treat, so long as the horse isn't IR or anything. Horses don't cope well with starchy & sugary feeds(yes, I know cereal's a traditional horse feed) and it can lead to all sorts of issues.
Id take the raisins, cranberrys and almonds out first. Treat yes, mash not a good idea. Too much sugar.
