The barn owner just told me today that they are not feeding any more alfalfa hay because some horse at another barn had to be euthanized, supposedly because of blister beetles. She wants to be sure her hay is coming from a different source before she feeds it again.
I'm feeling a little blase about continuing to feed it. I feed Teddy a fair amount of alfalfa hay, especially in the winter, to keep his weight up. I could switch to pellets (I have plenty), which he loves, but that's not as healthy IMO.
Do you guys think it's OK to keep feeding the alfalfa hay? I could maybe pick through it and look for bugs? Or would you not feed any until this is sorted out?
