    Default Horse not enthusiastic about TC 30, other suggestions?

    Once I started boarding my horse I started her on TC 30 and moved away from a thrown together hay pellet/vitamin supp/fat etc mix. The thing is that she doesn't eat it that well, and sort of throws it around her hay tub and what I really worry about is that she isn't getting the MSM I add to her feed.

    She is in full work and looks good, and I admittedly do worry about her missing something nutritionally if I am not putting something in front of her. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for what would be good for her?

    Will she eat beet pulp shreds? If so, you could toss a handful of beet pulp in with the TC 30 and MSM and see if she likes that better.

    If she doesn't need calories, you could throw a vit/min supp in with a small amount of rice bran or alfalfa pellets?

    If you are in a boarding facility and want to make life easy on the feeders, you can try putting a few tablespoons of mollasses in a plastic squeeze bottle with a nozzle, or a sports water bottle. Fill with hot water and shake well. Keep the bottle near the horse's feed and supps. Ad a generous squirt to the dry mix before feeding.
