Re: [RC] Pelleted Feeds - Heidi Smith


Should any kind of pelleted feed be soaked into a
mash- like consistency?  If so should it be thin or
thick... or would that depend on the horse's
preference?

Is it OK to feed a pelleted feed dry?

Pro or Cons?

The pelleted feeds that tend to be damp and tacky (Equine Senior as an
example) are not as risky as the dry ones, but I'm with Susan--soak them if
at all possible, and DEFINITELY soak them at rides.  It isn't as odious as
it seems to soak them--our geriatric diet (beet pulp, alfalfa pellets, and
Equine Senior) is ready to eat about 10 minutes after one adds water.
