Viva Carlos Blog Hop: What's In Your Bucket/Smartpak?
What supplements and feeds does your horse vaccuum down everyday? Gatsby
2 flakes of alfafa in the morning (has to be separated from his gf or else she will eat it all)
2 flakes of grass in the evening Rice bran and beet pulp (don't know exact weights, sorry! It is a ton though because he is a super hard keeper) In SmartPak: Cosequin ASU & SmartDigest Ultra (total = $94.40, definitely pricey but I really like both supplements for him)
Alfalfa morning and evening (exact amount varies depending on who feeds him and how big the flakes are, just know that he gets plenty) Purina Senior with Amplify (all of our pasture horses get this and it is pretty great) In SmartPak: SmartVite Thrive Pellets (total = $19.95)
I've never been a whiz at feed or supplements but I have tried a few things with Gatsby and what he is doing currently seems to be working the best so far, especially in terms of keeping weight on. He has always had a really nice coat; his feet were not-so-great when I got him but have been good for a while, needs shoes all around though. Kanye seems to be doing well with his current program also except for his feet; not sure if it is the supplements or the shoeing schedule but something is not quite right. I am going to start with adding a hoof supplement but may start front shoes soon if that doesn't help (he is barefoot all around right now)
Make Friends!! And maybe learning to lunge... (Kanye)
Enjoying some downtime with Gatsby and getting to know Kanye. Can't wait to get back out there next season!
