I was told by my Farrier to use Purina Strategy on Rookie. He's a hard keeper, and can be a little on the hot side at times. I was also told by a guy that I was riding with this past weekend that I could mix the Strategy with Purina Senior, and even mix a little Canola oil in. He said that the sugar/molasses content was very low in the senior feed and that the canola oil wouldn't make him hot like the corn oil would. Since I switched him over to the Strategy, he seems to be picking up a little weight slowly, which is the way I want it. I ride him pretty much every day, so it's going to muscle more than fat. I haven't tried mixing the senior or canola oil in yet, I want to see how he does strictly on the Strategy and free choice hay first.
Oh, and he said that the senior feed is hay based so it's more of a complete feed.
Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!
