I'm sure it works for your horse, but she's mentioned elsewhere that he gets 'hot' off of some grain, and that he runs into a canter... senior feed won't do this horse any good.

My Senior grain is pelleted and has no sweet feed in it. It was just a suggestion. I don't think the blanket statement of "Don't feed him Senior" feed is correct.

My other horses get Aussie Logic's Kool and Kalm. It helps to keep my hot headed horse a little more level headed and gives my collicky horse better digestion. We will be starting the Rescue horse on it as soon as he finishes his last bag of Equine Senior.

I really believe it's about finding what works for your horse. If he was always on hay, what's the problem with staying with that and fortifying with supplements if needed?

well before I bought him he always got the same type of hay....First cut....but now I have no idea what quality the barn owner gets. Also his pasture will have little to no grass this summer so he'll be loosing whatever nutrience he'd get from the grass.

It really doesn't matter if it's first cut or not. Just as long as it's good fertilized hay for horses it should be fine! Good luck and keep us updated!
