    It took me a few times visiting the calculator to really get the hang of it and figure out how to change the hay, plug in feed values and remember to divide my pounds by 2.2 to get kg - really throws it off if you put in 10lb when you mean 5kg.

    Audra - I am Lakeland native myself! Eaton Park - the good section. Moved to SC this past fall.

    Barrelracer, yes the Performance LS is what I am feeding.

    That looks like a pretty good feed label wise. I would like to see probiotics and ground flax seed in the mix.

    I would suggest a probiotic such as .
    Personally, I would continue the current feed regimen, try to increase hay when feasible, add dac Digestive Aid AND add 1 oz twice daily. This will help his hind gut digestion, boost his immune system and give him extra calories without having to up his grain.

    My favorite feed of all time is Ultium. My ideal regimen for my guys is everyone gets around 3 to 4lb Ultium twice daily with a min. Of 1% per 100lb of BW in timothy hay. And dac Digestive Aid at maintenance dose.

    My growing horses get dac Colt Grower and dac Bloom.
    My performance horses get dac Total Performance.
    Anything else they get is based on individual needs and adjustments are made as necessary

    I'm cutting my horses off grain, hope that I don't take too much protein from them, I am supplementing tho so they should be fine.

    I just moved here last June and am now moving back to MI due to a death in the family. I miss everything up there.
    The heat it way too much for me, idk how many more summers here I have in me lol

    How are you liking SC?

    SC isn't too bad. I was born and raised in Lkld, so this winter was a bit of a shock.
    It is just these past 2 weeks that it has started to feel heavy and humid like Fl. Hopefully me and the horses will be better prepaired for this winter. - It rained quite a bit and that did not help at all.

    Sorry to hear about your family member. My dad is in poor health, so I have made several runs back and forth to help mom. Dr.s finally said they don't think he will make it another 6 months.

    My TB will enjoy the winter again... not sure how my other two will take it. They will all be blanketed that's for sure.

    That's too bad. I lost my mom so I know exactly what you are going through. Although we didn't have a time frame for her, her death was sudden.
