After reading a lot of posts on here about how bad sweet feed is, I made the choice to switch to a different grain. I guess I never gave what my horses ate much thought, but my dogs and cat eat better then I do.
We were feeding Tractor Supply's 12% sweet feed.
After much deliberation...
Jasper is being put on Life Design's Senior pellet that has 14% protein, Flaxseed and Beet Pulp in it. Jasper's only 13, but could use something that will put more calories into his diet. He's not skinny, but he isn't as easy of a keeper as my other horses.
For Chilly and Nut-Megg, I decided to go with Nuterna SafeChoice 14% Pellet. It's more nutritious then the sweet feed, but it's not going to break the bank.
Let just hope my horses like the switch.
But, when changing their grain, should I gradually wean them off of the sweet feed and onto the new food like you would when changing a dog's food?
Thanks in advance.
