    RE: [RC] Black oil sunflower seeds - Snodgrass, Bonnie

    Looking at costs and such I would recommend feeding Buckeye Ultimate Finish if you are in an area where you can get their feeds. It's a kibble type feed, 25% fats from several sources. It is stabilized so won't go rancid and sunflower seeds can become rancid. Check out their web site: http://www.buckeyenutrition.com/horse/index.html . I've been thinking about getting some to feed my new skinny Mouse. I've been adding beetpulp to his feed but he eats much slower than the others and I have a time schedule to keep in the mornings so I can hit the road to work. The ultimate finish is much more calorie dense than the beetpulp so the pure volume in his tub will be reduced. By the way, all my animals LOVE it, cats, dog, horses.

    Subject: [RC] Black oil sunflower seeds

    Been hearing lately about feeding black oil sunflower seeds, still in the hull.  It's being touted as an alternative to feeding oil, and it would certainly be an easier alternative for horses kept in a boarding facility.
    Can anyone tell me the pro's and con's about this?
