I dislike Purina as well ... but honestly Nutrena isn't MUCH better maybe a tad ...

if you can get seminole you are sooo lucky I would love to try some of thier Equilizer ... it is also a ration balancer I am thinking NSC on it is like 10% and only need to feed 1 to 1 1/2 lbs per day ... instructions for extra calories are even on the bag for oats or beet pulp!! I would LOVE to be able to test it out but it is developed for that area so honeslty is your best bet...

Safe Choice is a good feed that won't add excess carbs to the horse's diet. It is a low-starch feed that's not going to bulk up a good-weighted horse.

Safechoice Special Care: I started a horse on this last nite, started slowly to see how he would react, good thing cause it gave him diarrea. That was with just a cup in his evening feed.

Any day riding is a good day.

I have watched previously easy keeper horses get thin on Safechoice. I dislike it very much. Im a Triple Crown girl. Love the 30% Supp.

I don't care much for SafeChoice because of their false advertising. It may be a lower starch feed but is in no way "safe" for horses with metabolic issues.

Mine didn't do well on it. Some do, mine just didn't. They do great on the mixture I use now which is woodys senior a 14 dealers choice pellet and woodys corn free all mixed evenly and laced with rice bran meal.
Each horse is different. Gotta do what works for you and them.

I love SafeChoice. I've never had problems with Nutrena products.

I hated it... I tried mine on it for 1 month and noticed a pretty drastic weight loss in my horses... I have since put them on Purina Strategy and both horses once again look wonderful again...

My horses did well on it for a couple years then they started losing weight, then they wouldn't even eat it. Don't know about now because I haven't tried it again.

Now I just have them on hay 24/7, mineral/salt block and horse & cattle feed just for maintanence and they are doing great.

12/8 for ones that don't easily stay fat
