    If you don't mind me asking, whereabout in NY are you? I just relocated to NY *from* Aiken! Can't find any eventers here! Where are you going to get your Cavalor in Aiken?! You should see if BB&B are willing to supply it for you.. they should!


    Faybe, you've got a nice looking pony!

    I must be wrong about the legality of the two supplements: when I worked in a feed store I could have sworn they were on the "Not Legal for FEI" list.. maybe they've changed since then?!

    Ugh. I currently have a barn full of hard keepers...except one.

    Most are getting 3lbs of a balancer a day, between 1-3lbs of a fat supplement (either rice bran pellets or something like Progressive Envision if they are really hard keepers). And the ones I'm trying to get weight on (low body score when I got them in December) get a few additional pounds of straight oats.

    Everyone gets a cup of Triple Crowns Omega Flax. And all the good quality timothy hay they can eat. They are turned out on a old alfalfa field that has grass mixed in and while there is a lot for them to chew on, it is dormant. A few in the barn also get a few pounds of straight alfalfa hay.

    Some of those horses are not even in work and getting all that...but they are ones who came to me very skinny and we have been putting the weight on them. When the grass comes in, even when they start in work, I do not expect them to be hard keepers. This is the toughest time of year for us to put a horse into good condition.

    The qts/flakes versus lbs is making me twitchy, guys!!! Don't forget that you feed by WEIGHT, not volume.

    That is all.

    Coming 5 OTTB that is competing BN.

    At least 12 hours of a high quality, well maintained, plentiful pasture.

    Divided into two feedings a total of:
    5 lbs of KER Re*leve (low starch, high fiber, high fat)
    1 lb of KER ration balancer
    120 g KER RiteTrac supplement that is an antacid and hindgut buffer

    Free choice mixed grass (orchard, timothy & clover) hay while stalled--in the winter this is about 10-15 lbs. In the summer considerably less.

    This horse was underweight when I got him 6 months ago. We were able to put 100 lbs on him (according to vet's scale) rather quickly and the vets at KER suggested we slow the weight gain down. We are maintaining his current weight through the winter and will let the spring and summer pasture put the rest of it on him. We are now feeding him about 65% less concentrate that what we fed him when he came!

    Mine does not get grain:

    2 quarts of Blue Sea Beet Pulp pellets (then add water)
    1 Cup Platinum Performance
    Vitamin E and Selenium
    Vitamin E
    (tested regularly to be sure her levels are adequate)
    1 Cup of cocasoya oil

    (fed two times a day)

    Depending on the season and her weight - nightly
    1-2 heaping scoops of alfalfa cubes - dry
    (vet said that if a horse does not have teeth issues or a history of choke - dry is better for their bellies - aids in digestion and helps with ulcer prone horses)

    I do understand the value of weight vs scoops/quarts but the barn won't weigh and I figure that, as long as the measurement is consistent, the value of the feed is the same. I'm the person that measures the food.
