Re: Question re: starting timothy cubes

Hi Robyn,

Cubes are fed at a 3:4 ratio to hay.  Therefore if you are replacing 15lbs of hay you would be feeding no more than 11.25lbs of cubes per day and you may find you need less depending on the horse.  Depending on how much your horse weighs and how much he should be eating in a day you can still feed hay; but you may need to decrease the amount of cubes fed (or hay) to make sure you don't go over the 2% of body weight guideline (and of course taking into account the 3:4 ratio as mentioned above).

I'll let some of the folks who actually feed cubes address the other part of your question.
