if you figure the min amount of safe choice to be fed against the min of a ration balancer they are cheaper .. feeds have a min for a reason that is what is needed NORMALLY in addition to x amount of hay/pasture to give them the needed nutrition
Proper deworming makes a HUGE difference in most horses when the worm load is too high they are taking vital nutrients from the horse.
Ration balancer on average is about 50 cents a day
Safe Choice on average is $1 a day at the min amount to be fed and nutrition is still boarder line low there
I am not feeding the minimum amount of safechoice or anything else. I have an easy keeper. So again, this is not saving me money, it is going to cost me quite a bit more, actually.
Maybe I will just put her on Smartvites.
