I feed my 2 geldings (one is 4 years old, the other 9 years old and they're both in good health) Safe Choice which contains 14% crude protein twice a day. What are your thoughts on this?

I have read on different websites that this high of protein cud cause behavioral problems and excess energy in my horses. They are pleasure horses so they do not get worked on a daily basis.

Thanks, Missi

I've posted before & after pics of my bay on the 'horse pictures' form. Check him out! He's came a long way in just 4 months.

I would also like to know this. Mine are on 14% right now.

Basically just test it out if your horses seem to get more unwanted energy from it then use a feed with less, my tb needs all the energy he can get so it works great for him but it depends on the horse
