Safe N Easy Textured vs. Pellets

So my mom bought the textured stuff instead...is this going to be an issue?

A while back I posted about switching from Safe Choice (Nuetrena) to Buckeye's Safe N Easy.

I thought I read somewhere that the pellets were better?
Ugh.

Thanks in advance.

The only difference I am seeing is the NSC is alittle higher on textured

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

Thanks. :)
I think I would rather them be on the pelleted, but the textured is still better than Safe Choice.

:)

Been a LONG day sorry I'm a little tired/out of it. I should have looked that up myself.

Thanks again!

no problem be sure you reweigh it since they probably aren't the same weigh by volume ... although it will be close

Will do!
Right now she's mixing the new Safe N Easy with the rest of the Safe Choice to transition slowly.

Fortunately my horse should have been called Hoover instead of Brandon. ;)
The older gents are a bit more picky.
