[RC] alfalfa/behavior - Chris Eickleberry

 …I work at a Thoroughbred farm, and my boss LOVES to feed alfalfa hay- as the lowly grunt who feeds and cleans stalls, I HATE it when the horses get alfalfa- they are all much more of a management problem. (they are all different ages- some weanlings, some broodmares, some home from the track for R&R, some retired)….I know the little ones and the lactating broodmares benefit from the alfalfa (and it doesn’t seem to bother them as much) but boy!! the untrained two year olds get RANK!!!..........the boss is finally listening to me lately-I think I showed her some of Susan G’s hay info-- and the last batch was better- an orchard grass/alf mix…..YAY!!

regards, Chris E./Indiana
