So. In my last post I was informed by many people that any cereal grain is bad for horses.... While my horses do look better then ever since being switched to this diet I'm willing to learn more. However while everyone was willing to tell me I was feeding a poor diet, no one seemed to have any names of anything else to try. I've fed comercial feeds. But I now assume that those where just that, feeds. Brands: Triple Crown, Senior, and Performance. Legends, Rice bran, Performance, and Growth. Safe Choice: I do forget which one that was. A few sweet feeds which in my opinion are all junk and pretty much the same. I've learned through research that Triple Crown is sappoused to carry a ration balancer called 30 percent supplement. And 12 percent supplement. Problem? We have three feed stores. None have heard of this. Or ration balancers in general. Do any other "big name" feeds carry a ration balancer. If so whats it called, actual name so it can be looked up on their computers. Are some of what I've be told and taught are feeds in the Triple Crown, Legends, Safe Choice, and Purina actually ration balancers instead? And again the question I asked in the last post that wasn't awnsered. If the cereal grains are no good, and everything else I've tried falls short of the cereal grains. What else can I try? The gelding was on over 6lbs of almost all comercial feeds, to get the same results that 4 lbs get in this feed. All in smaller feedings of course. Vet checked many times. No ulcers or gut problems. Tried all gut supplments out there, then treated him for ulcers anyways, and on an ulcer preventitive. On a supplment the vet ordered to help him digest. And on 3 2 lb feedings of alfalfa cubes soaked. Still looked kinda thin all the time, Even when not worked at all for months. Dull coat. And irritable all the time. After a summer on the cereal grains he's back to acting like he did in the past.
