Personally, I suggest calling your vet and asking for their opinion. Mine gets Strategy and does great on it. I asked my vet when I got him and she suggested it. I've also had vets suggest safe choice for hypp horses, ulcer prone horses, and an ottb. Different vets, different horses. Safe choice isn't an unsafe grain. It just isn't some people's preference. There's nothing wrong wroth feeding it and the average horse does fine with the amount of starch in it , which is low compared to some other popular grains.

Mine wouldn't eat safe choice. I think the 12\8 green & white bag is nutrena's version of sweet feed.

I have a friend who has hers on SC & they look great, they add probios in their feeds & was less costly so I tried it, they all snubbed their noses at it, so I still feed Strategy GX to the majority & Ultium Growth to the youngsters. I've considered switching them all to a balancer like topline 32, but can't find decent oats to feed with it in my area.
