Thank you so much for answering!
The horse is 28 yrs old and has been on this feed for at least the last 7 years and was doing fine weight wise but now looks kind of bad. He's not too terribly skinny at the present time but this past winter looked really malnourished. Now that you mentioned the amount he would need to be fed to get all the nutrition out of it makes sense why he has started going down hill. He has been only getting 1 3 quart scoop of it once a day with 24/7 pasture. I grabbed a scoop of his feed yesterday and put it in a Walmart bag so I can go weigh it at the store so I know how many pounds that is. He used to be on Equine Senior but I think he didnt like it.
I'm going to be caring for him from now on and I want to get him looking good again and to get the proper nutrition. Im going to have his teeth checked to make sure they are ok. Im pretty sure they are good and don't need to be floated.
My next question would be how do you switch feeds without causing probems? He's always been very prone to colic.
