I have a typical Thoroughbred you has trouble holding weight. He is a 10 year old and has been off the track for 2 years. He has an ok weight on him but he still has a ways to go. I talked to an Equine Nutritionist about feed to put Hero on. Right now we put him on Legacy by Nutrena he gets 2 1/2 scoops. It seems almost unhealthy to give this much. The ingredients are...this Crude Protein12.50%Lysine0.65%Methionine0.3%Crude Fat10.0%Crude Fibermax. 10.0%Dietary Starchmax. 18.0%Sugarmax. 12.0%Calciummin. 0.75% - max. 0.95%Phosphorus0.5%Copper50 ppmZinc200 ppmSelenium0.3 ppmVitamin A3,000 IU/lbVitamin D3350 IU/lbVitamin E100 IU/lbBiotin0.60 mg/lb
But he has been on this and about a half a scoop of empower booster for about 5 months and he is still not looking great! It makes me a bit mad. He has free choice of hay and grass.
But my other question is my farrier told me he has a hard keeper and the only thing that works for him is Omleen (sp) 400, but I have read reviews about this and a lot of people say this is not a very good feed. Can I have some of your guys input?? Thanks :)
