Grain Dilemma- What's good for us?
We are moving my little gelding Quarter Horse, Kelty, to a new boarding stable. He is currently being fed Ultium (which as I understand, is somewhat more expensive)
I'd like to go ahead and change his feed during/around his move (any tips on how to do that, by the way, are great too)
I am just absolutely and totally boggled by the many different formulas and ingredients and marketing.. It seems like everyone's selling something!
Reading the backs of paper bags after a while makes you cross eyed
He is 5 years old, recently gained too much weight at his current stable (which I really don't like, he was perfect), and he's not a performance based horse. We work maybe 3 or 4 times a week at least, and he's out in the pasture (this is south Texas, not a lot of grass). So I wanna do trail competitions like ACTHA and stuff regularly, and participate in play days, but he's certainly no champion jumper or barrel horse.
Sooo I'm trying to look into switching his grain and I'd really like to hear from some real people who know about this have to say about grains and feeds, etc.
I have been looking at Safechoice, but I'm open to pretty much anything. I could also feed Empower.. I'd just love love love some advice.
