Its highly digestable & palatable and does not make your horse hot. It also has the most calories per pound of any feed so you feed less than you would normally so the end result is a healthier, happier horse for less money per pound to feed. :)
I also have been feeding Purina for years (longer than Rosa) and feed Omelene 100/200 for years. I now feed Strategy to ALL my horses - from weanlings to 20+ year olds - this for over 10 years. Even though Strategy is a 14% feed it is a high fat pellet so I feed less and it's healthier for all horses. My 22 yo pony gets it and he doesn't do any work, but it helps with his Cushings. My 10 yo dressage mare gets it and she works VERY hard all year around... so suitable for all ages and occupations.
