Favorite brand of Ration Balancer?

I'm going to switch my horse over to a RB, so what brand recommendations do you have? I have 2 main stores that sell horse feed like Purina and Nutrena, so I'll check there for them there, but I want to know different brands of them, and which ones you all like better(:

I have tried both Enrich 32 (which you can get at purina mills) and min a vite lite (blue seal) which have worked well and the horses have seemed too like. I have also heard good things about progressive advantage but never used it myself.

Yes Enrich 32 is a pellet feed.. I think they smell good :)

I think Nutrena come with a RB but don't remember the name of it... Triple Crown has a RB 30%....

I think you and your horse will do great on RB....I think you'll be amazed with in a couple of months how your horse will look... and the bag will last you a lot longer b/c you won't have to feed as much of it...

But also remember to introduce him to the RB slowly I think the recommended amount of days is 7 to 10 days to switch them over... ;)

If I have a choice, Triple Crown 30% is the best IMO

I've been feeding Enrich 32 for 2 years. I am feeding it to two yearlings, a 9 and a 15 year old. I have had no problems with feeding it. It is the only RB I can special order so I am unable to compare it to another brand.
