Legends Show & Pleasure Feed?

I'm going to be switching my horse's feed over very soon. That being because Tractor Supply tells me that Dumor (he's currently eating Dumor Performance Sweet Feed 14%) is going out of business. I asked my vet about it, and she said that Legends would be a good brand of feed to try out. Since I'm going to start showing him next summer, and he's also used for pleasure riding, I looked online and decided I would try out Legends Show & Pleasure Sweet Feed. But, before I tried it out, I wanted to know what other Legends users thought about the feed. To give you a little information on my horse, he is a seven year old TB who currently is on good pasture, but is also getting fed 1 flake of grass hay every night, and is fed 2 qts. Of Dumor Performance Sweet Feed 14% in the morning and at night. I ride him almost every day, usually for at least an hour if I can (because of school, and having to ride the bus, I get home at 4:00, two hours before it gets dark). I'm also starting to jump him again, since he's put on a lot of weight since I got him, and is beginning to look like he should again. So, tell me, is Legends really a good brand of feed? Have you ever had any complications or problems with your horses while using it? Also, any other feed reccomendations you have if I decide not to go with Legends? And, if you think his meals are too little or too much, let me know what you think I should do to change it. Thanks guys! :)

I just switched to Legends Show and Pleasure but the pellets and I'm very satisfied. I went with pellets because after doing some extensive homework before switching, I'm finding that pellets are easier to digest because they are preground with the same good ingredients that go into sweetfeed and therefore dissolve better. Some of the stuff in sweetfeed tends to go right through them without getting digested. Pellets also don't turn into a giant brick in the bag when it gets cold. I researched Triple Crown, which is great but just much more expensive, Reliance which is cheaper than Legends but definitely skimpier on the nutrient percentages compared to Legends, and the Blue Seal feeds which are good but I didn't like the feedstore selling them here. So anyway, just a few personal reasons why I'm going with Legends and with pellets but either sweetfeed or pellets, I think Legends is a great middle of the line brand that is also very affordable. I did even look up how Dumor compared even though I don't have a Tractor supply near me, and Legends beat them on nutrients. I'm not just talking about the main 3 protein, fat, and fiber either. I compared each of the vitamins and minerals side by side. Plus I just like buying at Southern States. They are always nice and professional, clean, and reasonable. Your feeding amounts sound good to me for what he seems to be doing now. I might up his hay flakes by 1 or 2 right now with it getting cold, but if he's got good pasture, he may not even take it all. Hope that helped. :)

Thanks! :) My vet said to give my horse only one quart, since it's winter and I'm not working him as much, plus, he said to up his hay amount to two flakes instead of just one. So, I'll be doing that. But, by what you said, and by what two vets said, I'm definitely going to be switching to Legends.

I use Legends as well. I use the mare and foal, the growth, the pleasure. I like them a lot. I also use the pelleted not only is it more digestible but the horses I think get more nutrients because they can digest more of what they are consuming.
