Re: RC: Re: a feeding question

Hi Sarah and Chelle,

Would either of you be so kind as to put this in terms a hard headed person 
like me could understand.  I'm feeding the same BP/SF mix you mentioned so 
how would adding sweetfeed/grain up the calcium?  Did I get that right?  Know 
what you mean about that delete finger.

 is 0.56 to 0.08 Ca/Ph ratio which translates into 7:1
 I asked him how you would balance the ratio and he said grain mixed with it
 would do the trick.  check your grain bag label, as most grains are the
 opposite ratio of the beet pulp.
 overall ratio for horses is about 1.4-2 :1
 That's all i know.  Maybe some others will give their input.
 Thanks so much for an endurance question.  My delete finger is getting
 really tired.  :-)
