RE: [RC] [RC] Feeding Questions - Jena Williams


This makes sense to me.  I feed 80/20 bermuda/alfalfa pellets, beet pulp, sunflower seeds, 4-way, and sometimes flax.  I do not have time to grind the sunflower seeds or flax, and have my horses set up on a once a day effort. 

They get the pellets free feed.  I feed the pellets because they are less mess, less waste, and easier to digest (I have an older hard keeper and 2 endurance horses)

The beet pulp is prepared one feeding in advance in summer, night before in winter.  I throw my sunflower seeds, 4-way (for flavor), and flax in and let it soak with the beet pulp.  I started doing this because there seemed to be alot of undigested grain in their manure, and I do not have money to be throwing it away.  I saw an improvement in digestion once I started soaking it all together.
