Do you mean the mollichop applechaff? If so there is alot of sugar in that. I would change to something like hifi lite to keep the calories down. I also give my boy a treat ball with pony nuts in. This can take him atleast 45mins sometimes to empty and I stuff his haynet with carrots. The holes are so small in haylege nets that it takes him ages to nibble his way through the carrot
