Canadian Horse feeds

Hi everyone...
My horse is currentley on a pound 12% sweetfeed and 1tbls of Paprika and 1/2 a pound of COB and his condition could be better.So I am changing his feed to a healther option. I was planning on using Purina Strategy but I can't find any dealers in BC! Then I tried Triple Crown 30% supplement nothing! I can't find a half decent feed around here and its driving me nuts! So all you Canadians I need your help! What do I feed!
Thank you
Tasia

How tall is he? What breed? Try raising his hay and grain intake, 1 1/2 lbs total a day isn't an awful lot. My shetland gets more than that, she gets probably about 3 lbs a day split into two feedings.

Be careful with how much of that COB you are feeding. It has a high amount of sugar and can cause founder if overfed.

I feed FRONT RUNNER Cool Command for most my horses.
The oldies get FR senior Feed.
I also have a few on FR 12%

They also get flax, oil, some Beet Pulp, and Equine choice (pro/prebiotic combo)
I also add some different supplements on a an individual basis.

Horses are like chips...you can never just have one

Love Otter Co-op feeds - really nice clean product, you never have to worry about getting a bad bag. They have some neat new low sugar, high fibre feeds too.

Me too.

Where in BC are you located?

That's a fair bit of sugar feeding both sweet feed and COB.

Yep the FiberSmart and fat smart are 2 of their newest feeds.

Ken (their nutritionist) is great to talk to.

I am in Richmond but Hunter is in South Surrey - well Langley at the moment at the trainers :0)

I really like Masterfeeds. Right now I am using Fusion- a low glycemic feed and finishing touch , with equigold minerals and free choice salt and hay. They look great. I have used all the Masterfeeds products at different stages, and beet pulp, depending on what I want. If there is a rep in your area contact them and they can help you with your goals for your horse. Maybe it would be good to rule out anything medical as well?

Hi thanks for all your replies and upping his hay intake is not a option at the barn... I am trying to remove most of the COB his condition isnt skinny but just comparing feeds it seems he isnt getting enough vit. Or minerals. I am in the north okanagan area. =)
