I have used Blue Seal for years and found it to be a good feed. I never had issues with the brand what so ever.

I've used it over 20 years. The only reason I switched to something else was because I needed the lowest starch/carb feed I could find for one old pony. Never had a problem with it.

Love pretty much all the Blue Seal feeds. My personal preference is Trotter, although I have no problem getting something else in the same line if my feed store is out.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

A little OT, but I had used Blue Seal for my Alpacas, goats, and chickens for years.
The alpaca and goat feeds were the best (for them) I had ever found and the chicken (for them) was the second best feed I ever used.
Unfortunately the feed dealers in my area discontinued carrying Blue Seal feeds.
Given the chance I would switch back in a heart beat and if they make a Ration Balancer I would use it for my horse too.

I am meeting with the dealer this weekend. :)

She is coming out to see my arab who this is mainly for because he is not putting on weight. We think it is because of the broken jaw mostly but no matter how much we put in him it doesnt stay in him...so they have a feed I forget the name but it pretty much dissolves in his mouth to limit choking from not being able to chew completely. The feed has a better percentage of nutrition then the senior feeds I was suggested to use..
So hopefully this works they are giving me enough to last a month and if we see no weight gain we are going to try a different feed.

All I know is this guy is the hardest keeper I have ever had :( poor fella

Broken jaw? Awwh! Poor guy. Maybe feeding him like a toothless senior for now. Make a mush out of a senior feed and some trotter and beetpulp. I say trotter because I know it breaks up really fine when you wet it and it's a complete feed. You can feed it to horses who can't chew hay. I had a toothless wonder.

I already have him on a toothless senior feed :( along with some fattier feeds watered down with the beet pulp. Its a soggy soup... looks disgusting but it is so funny to watch him slurp it all down and then looks at you like momma that was so good :p

It just nothing atm is helping him gain the weight. He has gained about 70lbs since I bought him at the auction but he is still a good 2-300lbs under weight. And its just depressing me :(
