Question I have, ok so the protein maybe higher than the horse in question
(needs to put on weight) needs but even if you put a lower proten that
isn't necessarily going to make him put on weight is it?  I too have a
horse that eats alot of hay (alfalfa grass am and meadow grass pm) almost
as much as she can eat, about 1 - 2 pounds of Purinia 10 and about a pound
of ground flax seed a daily and essentially very little work right now.
She doesn't do well on beet pulp :  (  blood work normal and has been
wormed.  Teeth are done regularly.  I would love to see more weight on this
horse.  I guess I can add corn oil to the grain mix to increase fat but
back to the original question, why would protein be relevant to the
original question
It's not, really. They pee out the extra protein.
