Living here with all of these animals requires alot of feed, and I do mean alot!!! I am sure some of you are quite aware of these things in your own lives!! So it was time for our Horse Feed run yesterday. We buy our horse feed from a town about an hour away that makes a special pelleted feed for horses. We in the past always fed Alfalfa pellets with brome hay, but decided to switch to this other pellet because it has Amino Acids in it and a mixture of other necessary things made from an equine nutritionist! We met with another Equine Nutritionist a couple of months ago she worked for ADM Alliance Nutrition, and while their product was great it was quite a bit more expensive to buy but the benefit to most people was that they could cut the amount they fed in half because this stuff had it all. So I brought in the label to my feed and had her look it over and she seen no reason for me to switch as we wouldn't benefit from it because the stuff we feed is already good!
So I thought I would share with you our process of getting 3 tons of feed home, most stays here and some we deliver for other people in our county that have also switched to this product, and they too love it!!
Hubby and J arriving home with the feed!! Yes they took the stock trailer, thought it might rain..
This is what 3 tons (well almost they had already unloaded some) looks like!!
1 & 3/4 ton stayed here, the rest we delivered to fellow cross brand feeders!!
J unloading bags
J's a little hot :(
These are the times I'm glad I can't lift heavy things LOL Just kidding!!! Or am I?!?!
