Another feed question

I found out 2 days ago that my horse's feed was switched to ADM Patriot 12% Performance Horse Feed at some point in last month. Disregarding the complete annoyance and irritation I feel about the BM switching his feed without my permission or even telling me about it, does anyone know about this feed? Here's the link for the 12% and 14% - he's on the 12%. Http://www.admani.com/horse/Products/Horse%20Patriot%20Performance%20Horse%20Feed%2012% 2014.htm

Here is the ingredient list from their website since the link didn't work for me

Patriot 12% and 14% Performance Horse Feeds are pelleted, limited-starch, fortified feeds formulated specifically for mature performance horses. These products contain high-quality ingredients in a palatable mix to give mature performance horses needed nutrients for health and performance. Patriot 14% Performance Horse Feed is also suitable for broodmares.

Recommend free-choice feeding of a GROSTRONG Minerals for Horses product.

When additional energy is needed to meet energy needs, add a FORAGE FIRST Concentrated Energy Supplement to the diet.


Appears to be a normal fat content but I don't like anything with a percentage in the name, that just screams sweet feed to me. But I have no idea what is actually in this as the actual ingredients aren't listed.

Try to get an actual list of ingredients rather than the guaranteed analysis. That will tell you more. Look to see if there is biotin, yeast, a complete B vitamin listed.

Poppy, there are a number of pelleted feeds out there with the protein percentage in the name. I wouldnt dismiss a feed based on that.

Oh I know, that's why I said it's hard to tell without the actual ingredients. But a lot of times it's usually mixed with some kind of molasses, not always. I don't know if this company even makes sweet feeds. They make some very nice feeds though so its really anybodys guess what this is.

It says it is a pelleted feed, so it's at least not the sticky, textured sweet feed. That doesn't mean it has a reasonable NSC, but at least gives some hope that corn and molasses aren't the top two ingredients.

OP, ask the BO if you can take a picture of the tag from one of the bags. The ingredients will be listed on it.

There's actually two types of the performance. It comes in textured or pelleted. So there's another question, which is it?

I looked at his feed last night and it was small pellets. I would immediately stop the feeding of any molasses rich sweet feed. It's the blue bag, which is the 12% pellet I believe. I didn't see anywhere on the bag or the tag where there was a list of ingredients.

You know, I had been feeding their rice bran formula, healthy glo I think, and I don't remember them listing ingredients on their bags.....kinda sketchy

I don't feed that anymore but I would maybe contact the company about it, ask for a list. If they wont provide one I would be concerned.

That is sketchy. I thought it was legally mandated?
