Maybe I will switch them to trotter then after I start getting low on sport. I only had my gelding on it because last winter when I got him he was pretty under weight and that was higher in fats I believe. Should I feed the same amount of trotter as I do with sport? My mare is a bit of a hard keeper this winter but my gelding not so much.

I mean they're doing fine on it and always have been. The nutrtionalist was blowing a bit of smoke up my butt with something's though so wasn't so sure about the switch. Especially because she pointed out that she just didn't like sport formula to begin with.

This might help. This is my King at 15. Fed Trotter for years.

and King at 35 yrs old. He passed a few days after this was taken.

Think about the diet from a human standpoint. When I was 17 I could eat all the brownies, ice cream and other goo all I wanted and not gain a lb. If I were to give into my urges now at 50+ I would explode, go into diabetic shock or have a heart attack. A humans digestive system is set up to eat a wide assortment of food stuffs, we are pretty much garbage pails. A horses system is not set up anywhere near as wide. The sugar is going to get to them sooner.

Feed 'em for the long haul. They are worth it.
