Have you looked into extra magnesium, at least for summer? I have my blimp Arab on it and the nasty fat deposits are going away.

It looks like I might need to feed even less of it than the TC30% and it was cheaper ($26 for 50lb tub) BUT the molasses in it concerns me...

I'm thinking that it's "out" due to molasses but I'm not sure...?

Help! haha
I don't see any advantage to this one- it has almost nothing in it but vitamin A and calcium. The vitamin A is not enough to meet the daily recommended amount, though. This isn't an issue if your horse is grazing on fresh grass, but you may not need to supplement vitamin A at all in that case. The Ca:P balance is way off (20:1!!)- this might not actually cause a problem when fed in small quantities if the horse is otherwise getting balanced Ca:P in his diet, but something to be very aware of, especially if other high calcium feeds (beet pulp, alfalfa, etc.) are being fed. 4 ppm of iron, zinc & manganese is pretty much useless, and there's no copper at all.

I have not, DHW! I'll give it a look-see. :)

Thanks Verona! I knew "stuff" was missing but I wasn't sure of the implications of that. Thanks a bunch!

Google "magnesium for horses by Pauline Moore"
Very interesting!

I know this thread isn't very recent but the protein value is something I have run across many people disliking about ration balancers. It is important to remember though that it is 30% of that amount of feed. So 30% of 1-2 lb is contributing .3-.6 lbs of protein to the diet, comparatively, say you are feeding your average 14% protein complete feed at 4-6 lbs, you will be providing 0.56-0.84 lbs protein per day. So feeding a 30% here is actually less than it may seem! Plus then you are receiving protein but not all the additional calories that would be found in feeding a complete feed as directed. :)

Just an FYI Triple Crown makes its horse feeds in the same mills they make ruminant feeds, depending on the location of the mill. You can contact them and ask. I recently posted a thread giving the responses when I asked a few companies about monensin use in the mills that they make equine feed. I encourage everyone to ask their local dealer where all their feeds are made, not just TC. It is one of the reasons I switched to Purina - they make all equine feed in separate mills.
