Enrich 32

Hi Everyone,

My mare had a nutritional analysis done and it said she was not getting enough of well...everything. I switched her to the Purina Enrich 32 as recommended by the analyst.

She tends to be a hot and sensitive mare. Will this change her disposition? She is only getting about 2 lbs a day.

i have a tb gelding who is usually very docile. Hes not sensitive to feed atleast i have not found one he was for the 3 years that i have owned him but i started feeding him enrich 32 (2lbs a day) and he became sicotic. Bucking and bolting while being ridden, taking off on the lunge line. took him off it after we switched him back to strategy gx and a week later he was back to normal.

I highly doubt you'll see any negative effects from it. I've fed that to everything awhile back when I was doing and oats/ration balancer diet, and I use to feed it to my show minis (switched to something a little better). I never noticed a negative effect in anyone from weanlings, yearlings, pleasure horses, halter horses, stallions, colts, fillies, etc.

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,

Thanks guys. Glad I got both ends of the experience with it! She gets very little (half a scoop once a day). hence why the analyst suggested something higher in protein.

I started her on it two days ago and she seems to be normal. Hopefully it lasts!

ive never seen any behavioral changes when using enrich 32 ! i like it a lot and you dont have to feed a ton of it which is nice.

I've been using Enrich 32 on Lacey for about a year and I can officially say that it actually calms her down (she's ridiculously hot, for your average backyard horse, to begin with).
I like it quite a bit and it's so much cheaper (and better for Lacey) than buying grain! Yay ration balancers! lol

I feed my horse enrich 32, also. My horse got calmer on it, but I think it is because the previous feed that I was giving him was causing him to be a little hot. I really like it.

Thank you all! I'm really encouraged by your responses. Demi seemed a little more level-headed today. I'm glad the grain isn't affecting her!

Your horse may feel a little better if he/she was lacking nutrition before but all in all it should not amp your horse up. This product is corn-free is extremely low in starch plus the feeding rate is low. You'll be fine!
