Question Question regarding feed

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.

Thank you!!

Both feeds seem to be fairly similar. I don't believe you'd have a problem feeding either.

If your horse is an adult his protein needs are modest and sometimes the most difficult problem is keeping horses from getting chubby due to too many calories. Most adult horses can do very well on a mineral supplement and just hay. If you want to feed a concentrate to an adult horse, say, in the situation where the hay quality is less, just be sure not to give too much. Most adult horses get chubby on just a few pounds of concentrates a day, unless they're really working frequently.

You can look at the ingredients and percentages for both feeds by googling the products by name.
