Opinions on Omolene 100?
 
Hi! New to the forum. Been reading for a long time , though.

Anyway, what do you think about Omolene 100? Love it? Wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole? Does it make horses hot at all? That's my biggest question. I had my mare get "sweet feed high" before. If you want proof, I have the receipt from the vet clinic. So, opinions?

BTW, I know there is another thread about this.
Also, my horses are currently eating safe choice. It's okay, but I would like something better.

i wouldnt use it, wrong kinda fats, lots of missing nutrients, too much starch.

What do you do with your horse?? If you only pleasure ride, and don't work too hard, then it is a fine feed. If you work/ride her 3 or more days a week and use her in any competitions, events, then I would use the 500.

If she gets sweetfeed high, stay away from Omolene. It has a NSC of 34%, 1535 calories/ lb. The Safe Choice is, unless it's the Special Care, still higher than I would be comfortable feeding such a horse. Over 20%, 22, I believe.
Try Purina Strategy Healthy Edge. 17% NSC, 1300 Cal.
If you need the calories, check into Ultium. Low sugar/starch, lots of calories.

I tried it once, and turned my calm responsive horse into a nutter that bucked me off almost every ride. Took him off it, and he went right back to his normal calm, but responsive self. I didn't change anything else, so it had to be the feed.
It's glorified sweet feed in my opinion.

I wanted to try the Healthy Edge, but I don't think anyone in my area has it. Or the Ultium. She does fine temperment wise on Safe Choice. She doesn't need calories, I just want something to maintain her condition, as she is 17. We are trying the omolene, but I told the barn owner if either of our horses go nutzo, to stop it immediately. On sweet feed ( just regular 12%, she wasn't to bad under saddle, it was with other horses that she went nutty. We think she got into a fight with the boss mare. Got her butt tore open. I don't want that again. Thanks!

At the moment, she loafs around in the pasture. Long story. I plan to start riding alot more. No showing, unfortunately.

I wouldn't feed its just not good feed to full of sugar. My horse being IR he's got to have low NSC feed....or its a laminitis attack time.

Update
 
The horses have been on it for a couple of weeks. They are doing great! No temperment issues at all.
