Instantly I disagree with that because a complete feed would be fed at TWENTY pounds a day because a COMPLETE feed is all the horse would eat.
From the feed label, it doesn't look like a balancer. Being extruded, I wonder if that is why they sell it in a 40 pound bag instead of a 50...that would drive me crazy having to open that many more bags of feed. :)
I just did the feed calculator thing for my horse, coastal plus, and she weighs 900 lbs, and it said to feed 4.50 lbs of their grain, and 9.00 lbs of regular hay, and she is in moderate work. For the alfalfa it said 4.50 lb of grain and 9.00 lb of hay. . . So apparently it is not meant to be feed as a complete feed. It is a GRAIN
with some forage provided. They are calling it a extruded grain, which is supposed to make it more digestable.
