First, you need to soak for one hour with cold, 30 minutes with hot water to get the sugars out. Try the Standlee alfalfa/ timothy pellets, soaked. 8.5% NSC. No matter how much other feed you'll give, he won't gain without the roughage.

Sorry OP, for drifting off topic

So Far So Good

I am in the process of switching my horses from Nutrena LifeDesign Senior to the SafeChoice Senior. The formulas are very similar and my horses are eating it just as eagerly as they were eating LD.

~And God took a handful of southerly wind, blew His breath over it and created the horse.~

It is replacing the LD senior by end of October.

Does either of the Safe Choice Senior varieties have different packaging? Or mention that one contains molasses and one without?

I picked up my BOGO of Safe Choice Senior today. And there was only one bag of senior on the shelf, so I asked the employee if they had anymore in back, which they did, but I didn't get to see if there was a difference in the selection they had.
