My feed room inventory.

What you see before you is;

1. Mazola Corn Oil - $19.98 at WinCo Foods - Ricci and Gracie get a "glug" in their grain every night.
2. Horseshoer's Secret - $35 for the little on at the Co-op, $46 for the big one on - Ricci gets 6oz in her grain at night.
3. MiracleFlex Joint Supplement - $28 at the Co-op - Ricci gets 1.5oz in her grain at night.
4. EquiAid Physillium Sand Clear - $35 at the Farmer's Supply - Ricci gets 5oz, Gracie gets 2oz in their grain one week out of a month.
5. Garlic Powder - $2.66/lb at WinCo Foods - Ricci and Gracie get a dash in their grain every night.
6. EquiAspirin - $25 at the Co-op - for when someone gets sore.
7. Coppertone 75SPF baby sunscreen - $10.99 at WinCo Foods - Ricci gets a slather on her nose every morning.
8. Horse Treats - $12 at the Co-op - Ricci gets 3 to 7 treats after ever ride to stretch.

What you don't see is;
1. Banana Laffy Taffy - $2.16/lb at WinCo Foods - Gracie gets one or two a week in her grain, she LOVES it.
2. Standlee Timothy Pellets - $11/50lbs at the Co-op - Ricci gets two cans at night.
3. Omolene 100 - $17/50lbs at the Co-op - Gracie gets a can and a half every night.
4. Alfalfa hay - free - Ricci and Gracie share 3 flakes two times a day.
5. Pasture - $100/month - Ricci and Gracie graze all day on whatever grass they can get, it's pretty low though.

I just thought it was interesting to see it all. Maybe you'll think it's interesting too? Haha.

Your turn. =]

Green Broke
I've simplified mine down, and saved a LOT of $$$ and time.

Alfalfa hay Pellets (2-2.5 lbs for each horse, a little more than 1/2 of a 3qt feed scoop)
Trial 471 from (custom blended complete supplement w/flax, vitamins, hoof goodies, etc.), 1 cup for each horse
Gallon of Apple Cider Vinegar (1/2 cup for each horse)
Horse treats, as "needed"

I don't feed any other feed or supplement.

They get free choice pasture right now, with round bales of hay coming next month.

I have a whole separate tack room with sunscreen and what not.

As an aside, feeding less than the recommended amounts of Omelene isn't really doing your horses any favors. They're not getting enough vitamins and nutrition from it to be worth the effort or cost. You'd be better off stopping and using a vitamin supplement instead.

I have simplified mine a lot too- money is tight but having the right stuff is also important:

Flax Seed
Multi-vitamin with B12(i can't think of the name, I need to look)

Select 2
Flax Seed
Bug Check (from Smartpak)

They also get hay but the barn feed that :)

Over the years we've streamed lined as well. We just added another rescue into the group so his diet is a mix from the other 3 to get what we think he needs.

I have:

-Life line All Phase which is a non grain complete pellet 2 get this
-Step Four alfalfa pellet 2 get this
-Ontario Dehy Timothy cubes, 1 eats only this (no teeth) and the other three get about a 1/2 pound twice a day with their grain in it
- Mag Oxide 2 get this
- Hoffmans minerals
-apple flax treats they all get a couple in their evening bucket

Our pasture was picked over by June this year due to no rain.

My vet recommended I start my little one on Omolene so I did, and have so far been pleased with the results. And although I've never weighed it, she doesn't go at the mineral lick like she was before I put her on Omolene, and she's also decided that she doesn't need to chew on the wood. It was quirking her personality a little bit when I had her on two cans so I lowered it to a can and a half and she's back to normal. She's only on it until she stops growing, anyway. =]
