I mix my own and vary the ingredients based on work load weather and body/coat condition.
My horses are moderate keepers (very easy in spring) they are young and still developing (4 and 5)
I use a mixture of chaff (oaten and lucerne mostly) soya meal, copra, lupins and or rolled barley, sunflower seeds, rice bran oil, apple cider vinegar and a good vitamin pellet
Winter I feed 500g (2 scoops) oaten chaff, 500g lucerne chaff, 250g barley, 200g copra, 200g soya, 100g sunflower seeds, 75ml ACV, 100ml of oil and 15g of a good vitamin pellet (designed for my local conditions) daily.
Now (late spring) they are getting the vitamin pellet, 25g sunflower seeds, 125g (half a scoop) oaten chaff, and 75ml ACV most days.
If they have a really heavy day (worked all day no grazing) they will get barley and maybe copra to.
These horses live out on pasture 24/7 that is rotated and restricted as needed and always have salt available
I'm not sure I will bother with lupins again next winter the barley was much more effective and didn't make them nutty like oats have in the past
The ingredients I use are what's typically found in most of the top premixed local feeds (without the added molasses, fillers and preservatives) for breeding, show and muscle development.
