Triple Crown Senior Vs Nutrena Life Design Senior Vs Purina Ultium
I'm trying to put weight on my underweight 11 year old gelding. He is QH/Arab. I can get the TC senior but they would have to special order it for me and is around $23 a bag but the other two are readily available to me. He drops a lot of feed (even though I just had his teeth done a couple weeks ago). He needs to gain maybe about 150 lbs. And muscle. Any experience with these feeds?
I feed my hungry horses free choice grass hay, appx 5 lbs of Purina Strategy and then for the one I rescued who is gaining weight, either Ultium or Amplify. I think I prefer the Ultium, simply for cost reasons but I use the Amplify if I don't have time to go buy from 2 different feed stores.
I feed Nutrena Senior. It just has more good stuff in it, including Probiotics and Prebiotics.. beet pulp,rice bran, flax, biotin for feet, vitamins/minerals, etc. Everyone I feed it to looks great and in good weight, shiney and healthy
I use Triple Crown Senior and top dress it with their rice oil blend. It has worked well on my aged Arab. My feed store carries it at 20 bucks. I am sure because yours has to order it may explain the extra 3 bucks.
I have tried ultium, strategy and blue seal carb guard (cant get blue seal every where, depends on what area you are in) for my horse which have all worked well! I've also added oil and rice bran in the past which my horse loved and helped her keep eating and put on lbs when she drops weight!
