Safe N Easy Textured vs. Pellets
 
So my mom bought the textured stuff instead...is this going to be an issue?

A while back I posted about switching from Safe Choice (Nuetrena) to Buckeye's Safe N Easy.

I thought I read somewhere that the pellets were better?
Ugh.

Thanks in advance.

The only difference I am seeing is the NSC is alittle higher on textured

Thanks. :)
I think I would rather them be on the pelleted, but the textured is still better than Safe Choice.

:)

Been a LONG day sorry I'm a little tired/out of it. I should have looked that up myself.

Thanks again!

no problem be sure you reweigh it since they probably aren't the same weigh by volume ... although it will be close

spookychick13 01-27-2011 08:54 PM

Will do!
Right now she's mixing the new Safe N Easy with the rest of the Safe Choice to transition slowly.

Fortunately my horse should have been called Hoover instead of Brandon. ;)
The older gents are a bit more picky.
