Hi there. I am struggling with soaked alfalfa cubes vs. Pellets vs. Hay. I know the basics about soaked cubes, but I am finding that there is so much waste. I have a 10 yo performance gelding, and he eats very slow. He was started on soaked cubes in November to add some weight. The results have been wonderful. He is at a small boarding facility and they soak in the morning for the evening feed and in the evening for the morning feed. After about a week his ground feed bin was almost have full with disintegrated cubes and when I dumped it out, I found larva (presumably from flies), and was disgusted. Today, about 4pm, I looked at his cubes soaking for his evening feed (from about 9am the same morning) and it was filled with live flies. (We are coming into fly season in Texas already!)To avoid a "fly problem" and perhaps the cubes soaking too long, I though maybe alfalfa Pellets would be an easier a better solution for my stable owner and my horse. He typicaly a pasture horse that is fed in his stall and does not stay in his stall very long after feeding. Are pellets a good alternative? Meaning can a 5 minute soak of pellets be better than an 8-10 hour soak of cubes? Or, should I just switch to an alfalfa hay? He has non-severe hind gut ulcers (being treated) but am unsure about feeding unsoaked Hay-Rite mini cubes...Thank you in advance!
