Peggysue go read their website.. Total Equine Quality Horse Feed

They actually advertise that some low quality roughage is actually good for the horse because it slows digestion... lol

I'm not a big fan of feeds with corn or "roughage products."

If he keeps his weight up fine with pasture when riding light, then if you have him in work, I'd put him on a ration balancer type feed or a overall supplement mixed in with some alfalfa or timothy hay pellets.

I know that Peggy... Keep reading down the ingredient list. It says "roughage products." I don't like anything that vague in my horses' feed.
