SafeChoice Perform Feed ?

I'm thinking about this.. Is it a good alternative to other feeds? Also, is it affordable? I might be getting a 5 year old 16.1hh OTTB, and I will be doing eventing with him, but the barn I would board him at doesn't supply grain, so I'll have to buy it. Also how much would you give your horse, and would you feed him anything else? he'd be my first horse that I will actually be feeding, or atleast supplying his food and in specific quantities. My other horse I lease and keep her at the barn I lease her from, so I don't have to worry about her. But I have no idea on what I should be giving this guy.

Safe Choice Perform is an OK feed, but I prefer lower NSC feeds (like Triple Crown Senior), especially considering how prone to ulcers OTTB's are.

Thoroughbreds have the reputation of being hard keepers, and while this isn't the case with ALL TB's, I've seen more of them that it's true for than not. One TB in my barn eats 10 lbs a day between grain and rice bran
