Safe Choice feed?
HI! Has anyone heard anything bad about Safe Choice. I had an experienced breeder tell me that I should feed my weaned foal Safe Choice and I just want to double check. Im still researching what to feed. Thanks for the advice!:-)

My friend is using Safe Choice for her mare, and she seems to like it. However, my vet recommended Omolene 300 for my filly, and once she's a yearling to switch to Omolene 200.

i love Safe choice and have used it on multiple horses, i'm trying to find a feed store close to my new house that carries it. Its very good for keeping weight on horses and a nice shiney coat!

That was one of the top contenders when I picked a new feed. I ended up with nutrena life design prime. I'm not sure I would put a weanling on it, my foal nibbles (actually more like gobbles, now) on her mom's nutrena, but once she's weaned she's going on a complete feed made for growing foals.

I would definitely talk to your vet.

I use safe choice for my mare, and she loves it. Its a good grain, its a "safe choice" lol. I dont see any problem feeding to a weanling.

We use Safe Choice for all our mares, and over the last year it has replaced Life Design Prime as the most popular Nutrena feed around here.

I use nutrena safe choice for all my horses, and I love it. You might want to look around and see if nutrena has something specifically designed for yearlings and under though.

I just saw Safe Choice today and am doing some research for my Draft/TB.

The lady at the store highly recommended it. So I am considering a change.

What did you decide to do?

We feed it to our herd. I like it as it can be fed in the amount necessary to maintain the horse but will not make them 'hot'.

We do feed our foals/weanlings Nutrena Youth.
