    So I've seen Mcal everywhere when talking about equine nutrition, but I don't really know what they are. I emailed Standlee asking how many calories per pound were in their Alfalfa pellets, and they told me 0.90 Mcal. I tried to do the conversion to regular calories on google, but it said 0.90...

    Hi all, I know there are a lot of threads regarding feed etc. Which I've read through. But I just wanted to ask, if anyone has anything specific that really helped them put on weight on their horse. If by adding something really kick started it? I've been reading a bit about beet pulp etc...

    Hi everyone, I'm not sure if I've put this in the right place and I've had a look around but I can't find the answer to a problem I have so I'm hoping for some advice. I have 2 horses, I originally got a 2 y/o colt, he isn't like most colts and has the behaviour of a massive chilled out old...

He's a very hard keeper, we've struggled for months to put weight on him and it took rice bran (which made him absolutely nuts) and lots...

    So I recently (almost a year ago) bought a pregnant Morgan mare. When I got her someone told me not to feed her sweet feed(that's what one of our QH eats) that too much of the sugar and something else in it was dangerous for her because of her breed. Since I knew nothing about the breed I...

    Hi all, I was just wondering if I could get a list of all the amounts of nutrients that are in a good horse feed (ex: Minimum Crude Fat in %) and all of those ingredients. I DO NOT want names and brands, just ingredients!!! I already know what one I think I am going with, however I just want to...

    Hi all, I received this coupon in my e-mail the other day. I believe it's only available for those who live in PA but it appears to be similar to TC. I also saw that it was listed in the Mid-Atlantic Horse publication. Think it might be worth giving a try?

    Alright it is me again :-). I am thinking about switching to Seminole Pro-Plus 12 sweet. I was curious to if anyone else has used it before? Do you know how much it is and does it do the job?
