What do you feed your draft?

For the last couple of months I have had my Belgians on a local blend of 10 protein 10 fat.
I wanted to know what everyone else is feed their big guys, I'm looking at Purina Ultium, but not committed to it yet.

Mine don't get any special grain or feed. They both have free access alfalfa/grass mix in the summer and full alfalfa in the winter. Both are really healthy even if they are a bit fat.

My gelding is a very easy keeper but really likes to eat so he's on 2 kinds of grass hay, gets a little bit of pellets with rice bran and other goodies in it, flax meal, vegetable oil and a supplement for horses on grass feed. He loves alfalfa but I've done research and decided to not feed it to him due to the high protein.
