    I really like Triple Crown feeds. Most of their formulas are very low in starch/sugar (and they publish their information online). My horse is an easy keeper, so he gets 30% Supplement. For a horse that's a little harder keeper I'd look at their Lite or Low Starch formulas, and for a horse that needs more calories their Senior formula.

    Joe4d, that's what I was thinking about the sweet feed. I know its not good for them, I think its like feeding a toddler candy for breakfast lunch and dinner. That's why I am not fond of the idea of giving my horse that. I want him to have energy, but not be on a sugar high.
    Veronica, I don't think they carry TC feeds around here, I went to the feed store earlier today and I didn't see it. They do have Purina Strategy though, and I think that's what ill try him on for now. Thanks for everyone's help, I really appreciate it! :)

    I am in LOVE with ADM Alliance Horse feeds, My horses are on the "Ultra Fiber" and I have watched them change drastically in look and behavior for the better in less than a month. I will never feed anything but this:) I was feeding Strategy Healthy Edge prior to this........

    Oliveren15 are you sure they have Strategy? I live in Canada and this is a purina feed that I thought was only sold in the states. Canadian feeds would include Trimax, Evolution Elite..etc.

    Just a slightly off topic question, even if you feed store doesn't have it could you get them to order it in? I live on a smallish island a couple of hundred miles from the mainland Britain so our feed stores don't have the hugest range of products ever so when we want a different feed in them we just ask them to get it for us it might take a little while but we can get most things. Just a thought.

    Rbarlo, some of our independant feed stores might be more willing to do that but for instance, where I live I can get Nutrena & Purina for "name brand" type feeds. Otherwise, it's the local mill mix which IMO is crap, and/or a store brand such as Dumor from TSC. There are other really good feeds available at feed stores in the bigger city areas, but they're all 60-75 miles from me. The "chain" type feed stores won't order the specialty stuff and we don't have any ma & pa type feed stores around here.

    I'm fairly certain that they have it in Canada, boomboom, if they don't however, I'm sure I can find something that's better than what the other horses are getting.
