Hi Joyce,

Just to add to Susan's response - we do not recommend alfalfa at all as many horses become footsore on it even when the ESC + Starch is well under 10%. Esp would not use it with a foundered horse.

Bag1-Alfalfa mix:
ESC ( sugar ) 9.4
Starch 1.1

Add together and you have over 10% ESC+Starch= 10.5%  Would say DO NOT FEED to a foundered horse.
