Our guy, Big Al is probably about 17 years old. We have had him 1 month. He came to us underweight by about 100lbs.
When my vet checked him, she made sure he was on a gaining diet, which he is. He gets hay three times a day and a scoop of grain. Also pasture at least 5 days a week.
Today, the farrier, who is the vets husband, asked if he is on a senior food. He said that would put the lbs on quicker, was easy to digest and turns to fat better on older horses. Al is ridden about 3-4 times a week. He had his teeth floated and has no trouble chewing. He has a voracious appitite!
I have been reading about Purina, Nutrena and Tripple Crown. It looks like TC is the choice of most with Nutrena being second.
Does anyone have any experience like mine? What are your thoughts on these feeds?
