Raven, on the other hand, is a typical thoroughbred. She's that girl who can eat anything and everything without gaining any weight, and who sometimes has the audacity to *lose* weight. This is the only way in which I fear that Tonka and Raven are incompatible. Raven's former owner sent me a list of her daily feed today, and it goes like this:
- 4-6 flakes of hay (she will free feed on Tonka's low-carb stuff here)
- 4 scoops beet pulp
- 4 scoops of high-fat Phase 3
- 4 scoops of oats
- 4 mini-scoops of Cool Calories
- 4 scoops of alfalfa cubes
That's a lot of food for a horse. Raven is currently underweight because the pregnant mare she lives with has been stealing her food, but here I will feed her all of this separate from Tonka, who would probably keel over in heart failure if he dared to glance at it. I think we'll replace the Phase 3 with sunflower seeds and I'll avoid the Cool Calories if possible. There will be a period of trial and error, I'm sure, but we'll figure it out. Any suggestions?
