Today I decided to take the plunge and buy my horse a complete feed from my local TSC called "Safe Choice Senior Feed". On my last thread, I found out I was lacking some key ingredients in my horses diet, so it was time to buy a feed that would help give him a well rounded diet.
Here is what the bag said:
-Exclusive Nutri-Bloom Advantage™ increases fiber digestion up to 15% for better health and bloom
-Increased fat level to help maintain energy level and ideal body condition
-Organic trace minerals for immune support, increased bioavailability and improved skin, hair and hoof quality
-Added prebiotics and probiotics to aid in nutrient digestion and digestive health
-Contains rice bran, flax seed and beet pulp
Specifically flax seed and rice bran were recommended, so now my horse has them in his diet! I also like that they mention the minerals in it and the pre/probiotics. I am really excited to start using this feed.

Now for my questions:
Since I still have beet pulp pellets and alfalfa pellets left, I would like to use those up. Beet pulp is already in the feed, so would adding more hurt him at all? I was planning on feeding 1.5-2 lbs of beet pulp a day until it's gone, split into 2 feedings. Would that be alright? I was figuring on feeding the 3 lbs of alfalfa pellets too, also split into 2 feedings.
How much of the feed should I be giving him in addition to the pellets?
Thank you :)
