Senior Feed

I have a 21 year old National Show Horse. I am looking in to moving him because of conditions in my barn and he is my first horse so I just found out that corn is bad to feed them and that is what my horse eats. My question is does anyone know of a good senior feed? I have looked online but I really don't know what to look for.

When looking at ingredients what should they be? I really don't know anything about horse feed. But after finding out that my horse isn't eating good food I want to switch him. Please help!

Nutrena Equine Senior is the BEST. You may also want to try beet pulp if he's losing weight, but if not, try Nutrena Equine Senior: Nutrena: Products - Horses - Life Design - Life Design Senior. It is 14% protein so it may provide for some higher energy than he's used to depending on what he's on now.

Looked up the Dumor Feed and found this discussion on it. It doesn't seem to cater to seniors: Dumor feed - Horse Forums (HGS)

I found it online. They have a senior formula. I will have to see what I can afford to buy.

The best senoir hands down is Triple Crown Senior, Progressive senoir is a good one too...

Watch your tags and make sure they list actual ingredients NOT products... you want a good solid form of nutrition as well

If he isn't a hard keeper I would probably go with a ration balancer nad add in some beet pulp and alfalfa pellets for calories IF needed
