Lowest calorie feed option?
Help! My quarter horse gelding is an air fern. I am trying to re-evaluate his feeding plan to reduce calories where possible. Right now he gets 1.5 pounds grain in the a.m and 2 pounds soaked alfalfa in the p.m. I feed a good quality timmothy hay throughout the day in nibble nets. I make sure they aren't wasting but otherwise feed hay liberally. He gets a daily multi-vitamin.
He loves the idea of eating and I want to give him something when I feed the others (one a hard keeper and one an average keeper)....what is the lowest calorie option for the air fern? Alfalfa, oats, grain or something else?
