Info on LMF feeds.

Anybody feed them? Anybody feed the LMF low NSC Stage 1?

Likes/dislikes. Did horses who have hard work outs and compete lots do well on it?

I feed my QH gelding LMF Super Supplement, but I've fed their Senior, Showtime, and Gold in the past. I am a fan! My horses have always done well on LMF; The brand is formulated specifically for horses out west, and I've never had an issue with palatability (the feeds smell so good that I'm always tempted to eat a bite lol!). However, I have known a couple horses to get hot on LMF. My own gelding was a bit crazy the first week he was on it. He returned to normal, but with more endurance, which I don't think is a bad thing. Best of luck! :)

Since you also have experience with the SS, how do you feed it?

My guys get Electrolytes along with a couple Silver Lining Supplements and a Joint Sup. They have free access to a salt/selenium block. Would I take them off the Electrolytes and the block? Do you feed it like a supplement and still feed the grain...or is IT the grain you feed and that's it. I for some reason cannot grasp HOW to feed it lol! And makes me feel very silly for having to ask lol! But I have been looking online and seeing some great looking horses when they are on it so trying to get more info.

Also is the SS a pellet (another really stupid question lol).

The Super Supplement is a ration balancer, meaning its a concentrated vitamin/mineral/amino acid feed. Its meant to be fed at a rate of 1lb per 1000 lbs for an adult horse ( a little bit more for growing horses and broodmares). Its billed for easy keepers because of the low feed rate, but I use it on my normal to harder keeping QH. In the summer, he just gets the super supplement, but I do feed him 1-2 cups of rice bran in the winter to keep weight on. He's 25 and has free choice hay, but he does need that extra boost in the cold weather. Its nice that he still gets the nutrition from the SS, but I have the flexibility to add or subtract calories out of his diet. So to answer your question, the SS is not meant to be fed with other fortified grains, but can easily be fed with other feedstuff ( beet pulp, oats, hay pellets, rice bran, etc). If your horse is eating the recommended amount of another concentrated grain, it might be more expensive to switch over to the SS and use one of those things to add in calories. In my case, my horse was on 2 lbs of Primetime before I switched him over, so he was getting way below the recommended level, and thus shorting him on nutrition. I think it would be safe to keep the blocks out, as well as the electrolytes .
