If you've never used it before, I wouldn't begin now. Like BBBCrone says, it's "junk food for horses". I try to keep my horse's feed/life as simple as possible. When you think about it, do horses in the wild have a scoop of sweet feed given in between grazing episodes? A horse's main food requirement is hay/grass, (grazing) and then as varying circumstances in domestication may occur, additional supplements may be needed/required due to the domestication. My QH was used to having a 1/2 scoop of sweet feed when I first got her, and I've whittled that to 1/2 cup of Equine Senior (because of the veggies) My mares are fed 1st and 2nd cutting hay, have plain, mineral, and Himalayan salt licks, and only that tiny "whisper" of grain once in the a.m. Which is more like a nutritious treat that I don't even consider a part of their "feed" plan.
