Can you get any other feed besides Purina??
Yes, but this is the first pelleted food we found that he will eat. Do you have another suggestion?

I don't know if he needs senior feed. He is a hard keeper, but isn't too hard to keep weight on when there is grass out.
He is also a pretty hot horse so we like to keep him on pelleted food.

Comparatively how would it compare to what he's eating now?

He's also a very picky eater, so, how do horses seem to take to it?

I actually think we have some in the barn for one of the retired horses. So we can try it.
