Like Verona said, selenium is key in pretty much all of the Pacific Northwest. If you feed the TC, make sure not to cut it down below their minimum recommended level or he won't be getting the selenium he needs. The TC 30% is a ration balancer, and meant to only be fed at a pound to a pound and a half per day, so even if it is 30% protein, that's 30% of a pound, or right about 5-8 oz. Compare that to a "normal" 12% feed fed at 5-10 lbs a day, which would give 9-20oz of protein per day, and you can see that even though the concentration in the 30% is higher, it is still not overloading them with protein when fed as intended. I would go with 1.5lbs per day- based off FeedXL, the TC 30% provides about 60% of a 1000lb horse's selenium requirement per pounf per day, and knowing how little the hay there has...
