Good to know. Thank you for the information boots and Lexiie! This is why posted this. So I can learn... It just got a little snarky at the beginning.
I do wonder though, if oats aren't good for horse feed what is the best? All I've ever known and heard around here is oats. If someone wants to get fancy they will roll them. We were advised to put corn oil on the oats to bring up the fat content, along with a loose mineral mix and electrolytic.
Also, for a conditioning program, what is yours? I am going to work with endurance horses this summer, and would love to learn as much as I can before I go.
Joe, I am sorry for my reaction there.... I do want to learn, and like I have said, my family does stuff the stupid way. For example, the mare that I just picked up is possibly bred. I want to take her to a vet and get her preg checked and get her teeth checked as well. My family thinks it's stupid and a waste of money to do this. Frustrates me to no end. I am trying to give my horses the best care I can and provide them with proper feed, water, vet, etc. I just have to fight tooth and nail for it every step of the way.
Some days I get a wake up call on on how ignorant I am about horses and their care.
