What can anyone tell me about Omolene 400
Like it? Hate it?
We have a 2-year old colt that cannot have alfalfa or any feed that contains alfalfa. Even SafeChoice isn't safe for him - it does have alfalfa. According to Purina, Omolene has -0- alfalfa, thus would be safe to feed to Junior. It appears to be mostly beet pulp, which we already feed, so we may be able to eliminate or cut back on it. You sure feed a lot of it - Junior would need nearly 9 pounds a day!

I don't see any biotin in it, is that a problem? Biotin is for hoof and coat health.
Does anyone have any other recommendations? Junior is gaining weight on what we are feeding him but I want to make sure he is getting all he needs. Plus, we are looking to try to simplify our feeding routine. It takes forever to get the feed ready in the mornings and evenings, and we only have the four adult horses! (Beet pulp has to soak for at least an hour, and I'm leary of feeding it without soaking)
