Question Switching Grains- LifeLine

Hi everyone,

I am going to be switching grain for my 23yr gelding. He is currently on Pro-Line horse pellets by ProForm, this stuff: http://www.scribd.com/doc/58596432/P...-Horse-Pellets
I am considering switching to the LifeLine horse feed. It is a Canadian brand horse grain. Has any one used it? What do you think of it? I am interested in the Equi Cal Horse Pellet.

I wouldn't consider my gelding a hard keeper or an easy keeper, just somewhere in the middle. He needs to gain about an extra 150 ponds and he is being worked about 6 times a week and going to the occasional show.

Any opinions/ reviews appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Oh dear I wouldn't feed that. They can't even decide what they actually put in it

And needing 150lbs is huge. My girl is a very hard keeper and she only needs another 50lbs. So I would say your horse needs to stop work and you need to consult the vet with the best way to gain 150lbs on your horse.

Ooops, typo. I didn't mean 150, I meant 50.

That is better. I still wouldn't feed that though. Look for something low starch and high fat.

What does he need the grain for? You might consider rice bran instead.
