I used Nutrena feeds for my filly and liked it. Started with Life Cycle Mare and Foal, but when they stopped producing it I went Safe Choice Special Care mixed with half Safe Choice Senior. I originally just did the special care but my filly was still just too ribby for my liking, and I couldn't feed her more than 3 lbs of cereal grain a day or she starts acting like her belly hurt. It worked for her, but also had to be supplemented with 20+ lbs of grass hay, 7 lbs of alfalfa, and 1 1/2 lbs of rice bran! Definitely better than any of the Purina feeds I've tried though.
I think my gal had a case of the high metabolism too. Only 14hh (and barely that), 2 years old, and eating the amount her two pasture buddies ate together!
Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
