Anyone feed alfalfa exclusively?
Just got a new horse in and he's a picky eater (assuming ulcers because of other symptoms and will be giving UlcerGuard a try). He's meh about our grass hay and has barely eaten anything since he got here. Tried beet pulp and timothy pellets and he was also meh. Just got back from the feed store with alfalfa pellets and rice bran and hit the jackpot - he gobbled up a bucket (2 lb AP, 1 lb RB) right away.
I'm thinking of giving straight alfalfa hay a try for him to at least jump-start his appetite and get some weight on him. I'll continue with the RB and add supplements as he'll eat them.
Does anyone feed this way? Any cons I should know about? When I used to board, many of the barns fed alfalfa cubes exclusively and I didn't like it because of the cubes-only-twice-a-day factor, but I've never done alfalfa hay only...
