Is 12% all stock a healthy feed?

My 7yr old gelding in very very light work is getting way too chubby. He is on 24/7 pasture and was being feed about one 2quart scoop of alfalfa pellets and whole oats.

Any opinions on a pelleted 12% feed?

All Stock isn't designed for horses. A pelleted feed is fine, just make sure it's an equine feed.

if he is getting fat then you don't need any feed. Just the pellets and a good mineral balancer is all he needs.

Well right now I am in the process of conditioning him to get his fat butt into shape for trail riding. So seeing as he will be working more and more from now on I think he needs something besides green pasture. I bought a vit/min supplement to mix in his feed along with flax seed and black oil sunflower seeds for his coat. But I feel like he should have some sort of base pelleted feed but have no idea what to get.

If you're going to be giving him a vitamin/mineral supplement then he doesn't need anything else, unless of course you want to keep his calories up when you start working him harder. Then you can give him some alfalfa pellets as needed. Flax is good, but I wouldn't think you need the sunflower seeds also. Save your money for something else for your boy :]
