With last summers drought and hay shortage and quality available, we started feeding triumph complete. And are quite happy with it. The horses look great, aren't hot, and still have plenty of energy and stamina. We only feed a scoop each daily. No I haven't and don't weigh it, but they were gettin a lil chubby on two scoops a day so we backed it down slowly and are happy with how they are currently. They have free access to decent to good quality grass hay round bales and have some grass in the summer. They range in age from 5 to 25 mares and geldings. No breeding. They are in moderate to heavy work 9 months of the year and light work the other 3 months. They never sit more then a few weeks in the dead of winter. Even then are worked in hand and on manners and lounged. I think I covered who I'm feedin.
No my issue. I went to buy feed today and they only had one sack. Not cool. I usually buy at least 3. Hmmm. Apperently, they are going to carry less different feeds. They have every feed nutrena makes I think, and many others and even just added wrangler. It's a farm store, actually on a farm lol. Family run. I can see why they may want to have a lil less inventory. But they may or may not continue to carry the complete. The guy that handles the feed sales was gone for the weekend, find out for sure Monday when he calls me.
Onto my question. What would be comparable to triumph complete? Or what would be a good replacement? Or??????? I am open to suggestions. I really want to continue buying from them for a few reasons, I drive past the farm everyday and anywhere that carries anything other then sweet feed is 20miles or more away. I also can have custom feed made at a local mill (25miles away, but they make it in 900lbs lots so the drive would be ok) but not sure where to start with that.
