senior feeds

In your opinion, what is the best senior feed out there? I'm not sure I'm going to switch but I've seen enough arguments regarding senior feeds that I'm interested in doing some research. I am not going to a place where I have to have my feed mixed. I want to be able to go to a store and pick it up...

I may call my vet on Monday as well. I currently use Equine Senior (purina). I need a FULL SOURCE feed because one of my old boys does not have teeth....(He has a few but they are loose).

Triple Crown senior IMO is the best it is grain free and has a great nutritionaly profile to back it ...

Progressive also makes a good one that has only oats which in limited quanties aren't too bad

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

Triple Crown above and beyond. Purina Senior is all molasses...which usuallly is a nightmare for older horses

triple crown for complete senior feeds is a definite!

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
