Question: I brought a new horse home that has been on grain with his previous owner. I do not feed grain. Instead, I give free choice alfalfa/orchard and grass. Should I continue his old grain or is it ok to keep him on my regime? His body score is low 4 with just a few ribs barely showing. He is an 11-year-old Appendix with no health issues.
