Alfalfa has lower NSC% then most grass hays and so its fine to feed an older horse and more nutritious pound for pound. If you only added one pound or less to her daily ration I don't think it would affect her weight. I have a super easy keeper who has a muscle disease that required the use of 2 cups oil per day and since she was unable to work as much I increased her hay intaked alot. I was surprised but she really did not gain that much, she stayed about the same.
