Re: Ration balancing
Not a stupid question at all!
When I have a situation like this, I go by the weights of the 'ponies'. If I have a 1000-pound gelding, and a 500-pound pony (for easy example), I work out the amount of the mix needed by the 1000-pound horse, and feed 50% of that amount to the 500-pound pony.
There may be situations where this isn't recommended but I hope someone will alert us to that, if so.
