    LMF brand NSC Stage 1

    Anyone feed LMF brand feeds? I just found out on FeedXL, that the NSC stage 1 and Complete are really low in sugar and starch, even lower than Purina LS and Nutrena's Safe Choice. And since I have an IR horse, who has a history of laminitis, I was wondering if LMF NSC stage 1 is really safe to feed?

    I've always had my horse on LMF super supplement and loved it. He looks way healthier than a lot of other horses he's out with.

    I know a ton of folk that feed LMF and have nothing but good things to say, no info on the one you listed though, but if it is that low in sugars and starch, I think it'd be great to feed an IR horse.

    I've never tried LMF feeds, mostly because I don't find their guaranteed analyses to be very compelling. My horse is on hay year round (he gets some grazing in the summer, but not enough to make a huge difference), so vitamins A & E (which degrade very rapidly once grass is dried to make hay) are a big concern of mine (among other things), and the LMF feeds I've seen have been really low in these. They also just don't list a lot of minerals I want to know about when comparing feeds.

    My rescue Arabian mare is suspected to have IR and the vet gave it the okay to try the LMF NSC Stage 1. Both of my Arabs are on it and have been since last year. They LOVE it and my mare's fatty deposits/cresty neck have subsided. Hooves are great. I do wet it with water and soak the pellets to make a mash before I feed it to them (as it has no molasses/not sticky like your average feeds). It mashes up well and they enjoy it!

    I used LMF...can't remember which one now....it was a low starch and sugar, high fat feed several years ago. I had an underweight older horse, who used a lot of energy from being a high strung horse. She did extremely well on it. Recommended by our vet for her. She gained weight and muscled up and she was not any nuttier than usual.

    I have to say, if FeedXL lists it as a safe feed for my IR horse, then it should be alright. FeedXL even flagged Triple Crown's L starch/sugar feed. And being here in Utah, I am limited by having Purina and Nutrena about the only accessible feeds to me. The feed store that is closest to me at one time carried LMF, so I am hoping I can still find it.

    Thanks everyone for your input!
