GMO is Genetically Modified, like round up ready soybeans. There have not been enough studies done to see how these genetically altered foods affect people and animals, so I avoid them when at all possible. If I'm not going to eat something, then I'm not one to let my animals eat it either.

Some links with information on GMOs.

Thanks everyone for the advice.

Luvs2ryde, I've really never researched Purina. So many people use Purina and they have been in the business so long that you'd think they'd be a very trusted feed company. When I first got Major I was using a very cheap feed from a local company and he ended up colicing several times. He did stop colicing but I not only changed the brand of the feed but the type, plus several other things, so there is really no way of knowing what made the difference. I guess it's time for me to do some research.

Thanks again everyone.

I have used the Enrich Plus (and Enrich 32) on my own horses and we have used it for client horses at the equine hospital. We saw very good results with it.

The issue with fixed formula or not fixed formula is a "grey area". If you have a colic prone horse than a fixed formula is a better choice. If you don't, then I personally prefer Purina's strategy of altering the formula slightly as necessary to maintain appropriate nutrient levels. With fixed formula feeds, the nutrient levels can fluctuate because no two batches of any feedstuff (grains, forages, etc) are exactly the same nutrient-wise because growing conditions affect the nutrient content. So, with a fixed formula feed the actual nutrient content can vary quite a bit from bag to bag though the feedstuffs combined to make the feed are kept exactly the same. (We had this same discussion in my university equine nutrition course.) Purina makes small alterations to the composition of it's diet to compensate for changes in the nutrient content of the feedstuffs from batch to batch to ensure the total nutrient content of the diet.

Well people are still looking at it, you obviously did. I was asked to spread the word about this feed.

Sadly there was a loss of life from colic.
Unless a necropsy was done and a written report laying blame on the feed product alone you are maligning a company on a public forum with no proof....

Yes, colic happens.
It can be caused by many things and for many reasons.
Maybe it was the feed and maybe it wasn't...possibly it was other issues that contributed to the illness and demise.
You know of 4 horses who got sick....
How many other horses are fed this product every day with favorable results?

You may want "to spread the word" but do so with great caution or you may find yourself looking at a lawsuit for malicious rumors.
Purina is a long standing company.
To be honest.... without details given and a link to that actual necropsy report of a particular feed being responsible for a death....
Well....watch what you say to protect you as it is you issuing the words NOT the owners of the deceased horses.... on a public forum!

And yes, the "debate" continues today even though the original thread started many years ago.

Jmo....
