I bought it along with TC Senior until I get a better feel for this. I also will continue the ration balancer etc.

The cup of Horseshine weighs 4 ounces. 4 cups to the lb
You'll have to weigh the hay to figure out how much fat comes from that. And all extra feed ditto for the fat. What is missing towards the 20-25% fat you want, you'll have to
Start replacing some of the low-fat stuff with high fat until you arrive at the numbers.
If the senior has more fat lb per lb than the RB, I'd start there. Then add what's coming from the Horseshine. And so on.
