    If your pasture has enough grass in it, and horses are in light or no work, they dont need anything, but if there isnt enough grass in the pasture, give them some hay, if they are in hard work, maybe half a flake of alfalfa, timothy, or oat hay

    Um…yeah so your telling me that your QHs would do fine with 1 scoop of 12 percent fat just as well as they’d do with economic 2.5 percent fat grain? There are many differences, and their grain should be split into 3 or even 4 if you can for improved digestion. Why would you feed 2 scoops twice a day? A horse can only digest up to 5lbs of concentrate at one feeding and each of those 3 qt scoops is approx 3.5 lbs…so that means 7 lbs each meal, ur wasting 2 lbs, again split the grain up!!
