    I pay the outrageous $18.25 a bag for Triple Crown Senior.

    I find that I use less of it compared to other feeds, and it keeps the boys looking better than any other grain :)

    For my 6 yr old tb eventer I pay $18 a bag for LMF Gold he gets 8 lbs for dinner and that works wonderfully so I don't mind the price that much. Other than that he gets 12 lbs grass hay in the am, 4 lbs of stable mix to amuse him for lunch and 6lbs grass hay and 8 lbs alfalfa for dinner.

    Grain is very expensive here in the SF bay area btw $18 a bag is on the cheaper side

    I show miniature horse and also own one mustang mare that is used to trail ride and might get rode for 6-7 hours a month. I feed a mixture of omolene 200 and 12% sweet feed to the miniatures along with super 14 and cocosoya. My one mare gets maxflexXR also. My miniature stallion eats 1/2 omolene 200 and 1/2 strategy due to a recent problem with an ulcer. I am in the rpocess of switching him completely over to strategy. He also is fed weight builder, super 14, and cocosoya.(he is an extremely hard keeper and also shown in roadster, so he exerts a lot of energy to keep in shape and up to speed). The miniatures are fed 1/2 flake morning and night and turned out at least 8 hours per day to run and eat grass. The only one offered free choice hay is my stallion due to the current issue of treating a minor ulcer.

    The mustang has been eating 12% sweet feed for a long time now with sho glo for a vitamin and mineral supplement. I am also switching her to strategy due to the fact she is 17 now and starting to be a little harder to keep weight on. She is about a 900lb horse. She also eats 2 flakes AM and 2 flakes PM of local grass hay.

    I feed my horse progressive feed. Which is $30 a bag. My 17yr old gets diamond v which is yeast culture because of her stool problem. My old guy also gets sweet feed a night with senior supplement.
    I go with progressive because I deal with a nutrionalist and with my sway back horses they need it. Had them on it for about a year.

    Hey, I fed LMF Showtime to my guy for a bit and he started to get hot. He's back on beet pulp/ricebran. Have you noticed your horse getting hot at all?

    No more than usual, maybe you were feeding him to much or not working him enough. After all showtime is mostly just rice bran and beet pulp anyways so it's probably cheaper to feed LMF.
