What to feed?
In October I moved to a new barn with a new horse. My old barn fed every horse the same feed, so I never had to worry about it. My new barn feeds sweet feed as a standard, but I would rather go with something else and have been feeding him stagey instead. But how do you know what feed would be best? I have an 11 year old paint gelding that gets moderate to low activity. I have been doing a lot of ground work with him and only trail ride. He is a bit on the fat side, but nothing to be worried about. Strategy seems to be all right, but is there something better i could be feeding him? I know a lot of people don't like strategy, so what does everyone else suggest to feed instead?

I am actually very pleased with Strategy. I feed the grass formula to my barrel horse. She is a 12 year old Appendix QH. She does very well on it. I also add a hoof supplement only because her feet tend to be brittle. She is holding her weight without a problem and it doesn't hype her up like sweet feed does.
Sorry I cant give you any other options. I have fed Triple Crown feed to my older horse but it was a sweet feed and had whole oats. I don't like feeding whole oats because the horses don't digest it. Triple Crown has lots of different feeds though. That me be something to look into

What exactly is Strategy? I thought it was a sweet feed. I'm quite curious to know.

It's a pelleted maintainance type feed by Purina

it is a lower NSC feed for all types from Purina
think Safe Choice only made by Purina :)
NSC has tested as low as 24% and as high as 36% (would have to dig for those results again)
