OK quickie before I search some more

If you feed 6bs of 10% protien you are feeding .60 lbs of protien I edited because 6lbs is normally min on sweet feeds like this

If you feed 2lbs of 32% protien you are only feeding .64 lbs of protien

You have to convert and multiply the numbers to get the true amount of protien they are getting

I don't like senior feeds. I've used them before.

Senior feed are designed for the digestion of OLDER horses alot of it depends on WHAT senior feed you get also

If you don't like the senior feeds look at the LS lines of feeds they tend to be high fat lower NSC and higher nutrition

How much of it in WEIGHT do you plan to feed?? Min is 4.5 lbs max is 13lbs

This feed is fairly new for them and LOOKS great on paper without converting all the numbers

Since Blue Seal MAKES a vitamin/mineral supplement that is the one I would go with

3.5lbs per feeding.
