Which grain, if any?

I own three horses, a 7 y/o QH gelding, a 19 y/o paint gelding and a 1y/o miniature mare. I used to ride my QH gelding Ranger often and hard until around last September. Due to school my riding has drastically decreased down to once every 2 weeks about. And my paint is also very rarely ridden. I was feeding SafeChoice but when I stopped riding so often I was told I did not need to feed processed grains because my horses were not being ridden, I then switched to feeding oats and beetpulp twice daily (they also have access to round bales at all times.)

Since the feed switch I have noticed a drastic decrease in coat condition, and what seems like muscle mass. So I would like to change feeds again but I am out of ideas. Should I just feed SafeChoice again but in reduced quantities since they are not being worked? Or is there a natural feed mix I could mix myself that would be sufficient in all of the nutrients?

Thanks!

Find a good votamin/mineral supplement with added amino acids cut out the oats and try that

Buckeye Gro N Win
Progressive ProAdvantage Grass Formula
Kent'sHorseGo32
Triple Crown's TC30%
Purina's Enrich 32

If none of them are hard keepers you prob won't need the oats or beet pulp

My horse's in their winter wooles still shine :)
