I feed my horses the premixed pelleted feed (12%) they are turned out to pasture 24/7 and only stalled during feeding time, and I keep mineral blocks for them at all times. I do have a 21 yr. Gelding and a 3 yr. Thouroughbred mare(2 of the 5 horses ) that may need to either have a suppelment or higher quality feed. The mare has chipped and cracked hoofs ( the people I got her from did their "own trimmings" and basically didn't know what they were doing so she has been under my farriers care since I got her and is making some improvement) plus her coat isn't the shiniest of them all, but much better since I've gotten her and have her on a deworming schedule.
The gelding has dry flaky spots( it's not rain rot or anything like that, the vet. Checked him out and she said older horses tend to do that) other than that he's fine. My question is, based on opinons, should I just change all the horses to a high quality Senior feed(I've heard that some pepole give all their horses Senior feed, not just the older horses) or should I keep them on what they are on (plus of course free pature and mineral block) and give them an All in one Supplement to address each of their needs? All opinions are appreciated!!
