I saw a liquid supplement listed on Drsfosterandsmith.com called Liquid747, and it was listed in their chart along side some of the more expensive supplements such as Accel, so it might be one to consider. I've seen the RedCell, but I do not know anything about it.

Red cell is not complete. It's fine added to a grain or feed diet, but it's not suitable for a grain/feed-free diet. It is low in everything but Iron and Potassium. Click on the "more information" tab on this pad to see a break down: Horse Vitamins & Minerals for Healthy Horse Feeding: Red CellŪ by Farnam

Compare that to Uckele's Equi-Base Grass:
Uckele Equine Nutrition

Or Nurti-Plus++:
Equine Products Inc - Top quality equine supplements

Liquid747 is also low in the vitamin department. It has a lot of different Amino Acids, but not very much of them. To get the nutrition your horse needs on a grain-free diet, you'd have to feed 10-12 oz a day, which makes it expensive to feed and the horse might appreciate that much "stuff".

Dr Foster's doesn't have any supplements that would be suitable for a horse on a grain/feed-free diet.

You'll likely have to order either one. Contact the companys and see if they have any distributors in your area. SmartPak's shipping is reasonable and their SmartVite Maintenance Grass is a good one.

Accel was listed on an equine study site as a good choice for an all around supplement for hay only diets. Is that not the case? Jeffers sells this for $90 plus freight for 30lbs, I believe.

I tend to agree with everyone else. He is thinner. I would check with my vet and maybe some good T&A and Alfalfa hay not grass. He needs atleast 4-5 feeds of the good hay. Along with the other grains and supplements.

Accel Lifetime looks like it's decent and might be good for a hay-only diet, but the regular Accel is a little light on some of the ingredients I look for (but so is Select II and Balance II, both marketed to horses on low or no grain diets).

Accel Lifetime: Accel Lifetime from SmartPak Equine

Thanks. I am adding beet pulp, flaxseed and rice bran as well, so it will not be hay only, and for now, they are on pasture (though sparser than I'd like).
