Senior Glo vs. MoorGlo vs. Equilete vs. Equipeak

Ok .... so my title is all over the place ... LOL!

I am currently feeding Lakeland Animal Nutritions Equilete Pellet .... I was considering switching to Equipeak pellet and then came across SeniorGlo and MoorGlo ....

I'M SO CONFUSED!!!

So let me tell you what I've got and what I'm doing and maybe someone can help.

I have a Quarter horse gelding, 21 years old and my daughter is currently training to barrel with him. She rides about 4 times a week.

I have a Quarter horse gelding, 9 years old and I would love to do barrels with her but am currently just riding with her at the same time getting him into shape.

So .... what should I feed which one and which thing? I have a local feed store that is litterally down the street from me so I am trying to keep to the feed that she offers which is the Lakeland feed and Manna Pro.

I also supplement with a vitamin by ADA called Healthy Glo and also give the older guy Senior Flex for his joints.

I would love for everyone to give me their thoughts, ideas and anything they want to say .... I think everyone here is so knowledgeable .... that I thank you all in advance for your insight.

Thanks again!!

I'd steer clear of Equilete or Equipeak; corn isn't very good for horses, and it's the first or second ingredient in both of those.

MoorGlo seems like it's meant to be fed as a supplement, not as a primary ration, and doesn't have very much in the guaranteed analysis. It recommends feeding it with one of their mineral products for that reason, so it may not be the most cost effective or convenient option for you.

SeniorGlo looks like it could be a good option, although it doesn't have an ingredient list or list it's NSC online, just that it's "less starch and molasses than typical senior feeds" which means that it could still be high in both of those things.

I found the NSC for the Seniorglo on line ... it's 12% .... not sure what that is or if that's good.

Well I just picked up the rice bran of theirs. Healthy Glo nuggets. Healthy glo is not a vitamin supplement, it is a fat supplement.
This gives you a good idea.

Moor glo is a fat supplement as well just with limited starch. I will most likely be switching to this product when my current bag is low.

Healthy Glo meal is also a good all around choice. I personally cannot afford to feed this or else I would.

12% is pretty good. I think anything below 14% is typically considered "low," although horses that need a low starch diet due to medical conditions usually need even lower than that.

It looks like SeniorGlo could be a good choice for your horses. It includes HealthyGlo already, so you might be able to save some money by not having to add it in anymore.
