Right now she is on 6lb a day of nutrena pro force fuel and is gaining nicely but seems alittle hot on it? As well as beet pulp with molasses
So my question is what do you feed?? Nutrena Purina, and triple crown, are the top sellers here at my feed store in fl which do you feed and what style of the feed also if possible give me an estimate on price per bag your experience with it are your horses calm or hot
What do you look for in a horse feed.

First, I would change the beet pulp to plan, no molasses, beet pulp. Molasses helps make some horses hot, and sounds like that would be your baby.
I love my purina!!! I have 2 arabians and a national show horse (arab x saddlebred)...and purina feeds do not make my horses hot or crazy. I have recently gone from omolene 200 to ultium competition. The ultium has higher fat and fiber than the omolene, and has lower carbs.
my nsh is extremely hard to keep weight. He had a bladder stone, and the pain made him drop weight like you wouldn't believe. After his surgery, the vet had me put him on the ultium competition and he's doing very well on it. He's a big boy, standing 17 hands with a healthy weight of around 1300lbs. He's currently eating 10lbs per day, and I will be adding a bit more here, soon. The feed is kind of pricey (i pay almost $26 with taxes for 1 bag in kentucky)...but it is so well worth while!!
Hope this helps some.
