i will definitely consider a vita/min supplements. im not opposed to that but finding an economical one that is still a good one has proven difficult. i will talk with my feel store and see what i can get in large qualities.

I know prices will be a little different in your area, but I know that in my local feed store, Nutrena Empower Balance is ~$.60/lb, with most horses need between 1-2 lbs/day.

If you can get Seminole Equalizer in your area, that might be something to look into, as it is designed to be fed with oats.

There are also several vit/min supplements- I know Horse Guard is very easy to find in my area and is less than $.50/serving.

I think your current program is pretty good. I give my horses 3-5 pounds of alfalfa pellets a day, but they don't get oats. Since you're interested in an all-around vitamin, I wanted to suggest High-Point. I got it from, and it seems to have all the vitamins they need with out fillers or junk.
