Foal
I have not used it but my horse that went down was on it when I first bought him. We got sand colic from the lady feeding him in a sandy round pen on the ground that being said he was a great weigh and his coat looked so good for being in a round pen all the time had to be the feed. I would feed it but the stores around here don't carry it because they say it goes bad before they can sell it.

Foal
Hey FoxyRoxy1507

Mid-west feeds in Jonesville and High Springs has Nutrena Safe Choice. They also have Manna Pro Safe Performance, it has about the nutritional break down.
Just thought you might want to know.

I wouldn't feed them Safe Choice, the protein levels are a little low for a weanling. During my internship I've spoken with several people (vets, feed reps, and owners) about this product and what horses it is used with and there are better products for weanlings out there. Nutrena makes several as do the other feed companies.

Yearling
Safe Choice is one of the main feeds we use where I board. Its great because it maintains well without making the horses hot! But for the weanlings I believe they get fed a Vitality and safechoice mix :)

Weanling
I fed SafeChoice last winter when my feed store ran out of Prime. I liked it alright.

Just wish they made it in a 12%

I agree. My filly's grain is 16% protein and is designed for young, growing horses.

She'll probably go down to a 14% when she's about a year old. Then safe choice would be an option.

Goes bad? It's a pelleted feed in a plastic type bag. It has to be the storage - not the product.

Feeding foals has to be individualized. If the foal is growing too quickly, SafeChoice is a good alternative to the youth designed feeds.

We do feed Nutrena Youth one feeding and SafeChoice the other feeding.
