Which new RB to use????
When I first got my horses 9 years ago I was told by our Vet to feed Buckeye Gro-N-Win. It seemed to work very well until all the feed stores around stopped carrying it. Then the Vet told me to start using Purina Enrich 32. Okay, that was fine until a couple of weeks ago when Hubby comes home and says that TS no longer carries it. I went to a different TS near where I work and they told me the same thing. They were out and would not be getting anymore.
At the time the only thing that I could find that sounded like a RB was Nutrena Empower Balance. That bag is getting low so I need to make a choice and fast...Also I just called TS as I had some concerns about the Nutrena Empower Balance. To me it just smells to darn good to be a RB. Anyway the girl at our local store says that they still carry the Purina Enrich, it is just combined now ( I guess the 32 & the 12) and they will continue with Nutrena. I asked her which was best and she said the Purina Enrich. Now I dont know what to do. My horses LOVE the Nutrena but they have only been on it about a week so I have no idea if it will be good for them or not. I have 3 very easy keepers, 16yr old QH, 8 yr old Halflinger, and a standard donkey. I also have a TW mare. I dont know that she is an easy keeper but she makes sure she gets enough food. They have grass pasture and coastal hay.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
