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!
