RE: [RC] fat vs protein question - Ranelle Rubin


I would add the three way grain hay that we have available locally. Ross Hay in Lincoln is where I got mine for the year, and he likely still has it. You can also try Dave's Hay Barn in Penryn..not sure if he has it or not. I would rather see them get a flake of that a day than add any more concentrates. It is Oat/Beardless Wheat/Beardless Barley..My two love it!
