I sit down and did a calculation last year on the cost of fat using Natural
Glo and cron oil. It turns out that the cost per gram of fat using corn
oil is about 1/2 as using Natural Glo. This used grocery store prices for
corn oil. If you bought it in bulk it would be even less.

I feed some hay cubes (about one pound per day alfalfa cubes) and regular
grass hay. I always soak the cubes. It doesn' t take long, only about 5
to 10 minutes. In cool weather you can soak them over nignt. In hot
weather I worry about them fermenting if soaked over night.

I believe that horses do better if their diet contains long fiber, i.e.
hay. I would not eliminate all hay - but that is my conversative opinion
so take it for what it may be worth.



The race is not always to the swift, but to those that keep running.
