I have fed it to laminitis prone horses before but could I feed it to a overweight Arab to help her get her waistline back? Currently she is on a roll of meadow hay - not brilliant quality, but something to chew on in the day. There is no feed on the ground so I like her having 24hr access to some form of hay, and I think oaten may be more fattening? She also gets a small hardfeed of shandy (maybe 2 litres) and handful of ponycubes & her supplements. She is not in work at the moment as hubby is in Canada & I can't leave the kids at home by themselves while I go for a ride!!! Roll on school again! Would speedi-beet be less fattening than what she is on now?
