My bag was Empower Balance that was moldy. Red pellets had turned to green powder.

Even strategy healthy edge is too much for my old pony. I do use Purina's mini horse and pony food for my 16 hand TWH. The other 2 get a mix of the ration balancer, a local hay stretcher that has an NSC of 6.9% and a couple cups of alfalfa pellets mixed in. The walker also gets some of this mix because she isn't getting near a full ration of the pony food. So far this has saved the old pony from a grazing muzzle. Pony does get a handful of the pony food in hers, just enough to make most of the mag-ox stick. Purina said the mini horse food has an NSC of 17%.

They do have the Wellsolve line. L/S would be 11%, if I remember right. My IR suspect blimp eats 9 oz alfalfa pellets, dryweight, his vit/mins, Remission for mg, extra vit E and flaxseed. No feed or RB.Even the Empower is too high calorie for him lol. Which is totally off topic, sorry OP

My tractor supply doesn't have a lot of choices for horse feed. Nothing for really reduced starch feeds besides the mini horse. So far healthy edge hasn't shown up there. The spot where my ration balancer once sat is now taken by llama feed.

Wandering back onto topic...

That was the only moldy bag I've ever gotten in all my years of buying feed, 40+ yrs. I did get a bag from another feed store once that had a few pantry moths fly out when I opened the bag. Didn't impress me so I stuck with the Purina mini horse food.
