I'm a new horse owner so I'm learning as I go. MY BO asked me if I wanted my horse to be switched to Southern States Solutions pellets. She said she has learned about it and thinks its a better food and has already started her 4 on it. The label says its good for all stages of the horse lifecycle. I am an LVT and on the dog and cat side, you do not want to feed a food that is designed for babies and adults. Is this not the case with horses? He is currently on the Southern States Economy pellets and sweet feed with alfalfa and grass hay.
