This horse has laminitis so he does not need anything 'extra', especially sugar! He won't be able to graze in the spring/summer unless closely monitored. Because of this, I am not going with grain at all.
Hay isn't enough vitamin/mineral/nutrition wise, especially because he'll be ridden/worked what is considered light or 'moderate'. (3-6x per week for an hour or two.) I have been looking at supplements to help with his coat, hair growth, inside health, and be filled with all vitamins/minerals he will need. Since I'm not feeding grain, I looked for a pelleted form.
I found this;
SmartVite EZ Keeper Grass Pellets - Horse Multi-Vitamin Supplements from SmartPak Equine
Do you think the grass hay, some pasture, and the EZ Keeper pellets will be sufficient? I want him to be as healthy and balanced as possible without flaring up his very mild laminitis. (It will cause him discomfort and soreness, but isn't extreme.)
(The pellet has Vitamin A, B-1, B-12, C, E, D, and Biotin, colic acid, selenium, potassium, iron, etc. C:P ratio is good. (Calcium is more than doubled then phosphorus. You can see the chart.)
