Equipride crumbles?

Does anyone use these? Thoughts on the product?

I fed EquiPride in the meal form (maybe crumbles?), in the 50 Lb bag for five years.

None of my four were crazy about it but ate it when I mixed it with rice bran or timothy pellets.

Then last Fall, over a three week span they all went on strike and refused to eat it. To the point I ended up throwing out half a bag

I thought everyone was doing very well on it, as opposed to low starch products by other companies.

As I look back, I can see a lot of pluses to EquiPride but, I am now also wondering if, as a total supplement, it missed the mark in certain ways.

Hoof and coat quality were terrific

My food/soy intolerant horse did pretty good on it but he's done a whole lot better since I put him on McCauley's M10-Balancer. He was the first one to stop eating EQuiPride

Hopefully others will come in with their experiences. I would say try it because it is soy and grain free (distillers grains don't count:)

If you have high humidity, make sure what you buy is fresh and possible keep it in a temperature controlled environment, so it doesn't ferment.

It took me awhile to use up 50 pounds, even on four horses, because you only feed ten ounces daily.
