TSC had a major sale on Safe Choice though so I thought I would try it (I bought 20 bags....) and I can't see a change in anyone. It seems to work and be a good feed for us. Now we have....ONE feed rather than FOUR feeds!
This is one thing I like best about Safe Choice- You can feed it to all types of horses..within reason.

The last feed I used smelled bland, but had a strong herby/oily taste that horses like. Safe choice, on the other hand, smells delicious (from the horses point of view) but is actually really bland in flavor.
We feed it anyway and the horse doesn't seem to mind!
this is interesting because I HATE the smell of Safe Choice but agree that it tastes bland..my horses seem to love it though.

I do know plenty of people that do use it an love it, its just not for me or my mare.
hmmm that is unfortunate. I'm glad you found a feed that you like!! What works for some often doesn't work for others!
