Re: Hay Analysis
Thanks Cass for your response. For Bermuda grass hay, it is very nice hay, leafy, smells great, and is very palatable---our other horses love it and Montana was eating it until about 2 months ago. We stopped feeding it to her when we thought it was so high in starch due to the other analysis I had done. They had starch at 4.2 and sugars at 9.4. She had been a little sore footed, especially her LH, but my farrier discovered a white line separation caused by sand packing into it.
I will go read that article. I had been taught to use the NSC % of feeds per my experience on FB groups, but am quickly realizing that the learning curve with EMS is not really a curve, but a straight line up!!!
I did have the 601 Equi-Tech done, but will use the 603 Trainer in the future. Thanks for that as well.
I would like to feed Montana some of this hay. She is on the Timothy Balance Cubes now with salt, flax, and Vita E added to some I have soaked. If I feed half and half, do I need to add something to balance it?
