I really like Triple Crown feeds. Most of their formulas are very low in starch/sugar (and they publish their information online). My horse is an easy keeper, so he gets 30% Supplement. For a horse that's a little harder keeper I'd look at their Lite or Low Starch formulas, and for a horse that needs more calories their Senior formula.

Joe4d, that's what I was thinking about the sweet feed. I know its not good for them, I think its like feeding a toddler candy for breakfast lunch and dinner. That's why I am not fond of the idea of giving my horse that. I want him to have energy, but not be on a sugar high.
Veronica, I don't think they carry TC feeds around here, I went to the feed store earlier today and I didn't see it. They do have Purina Strategy though, and I think that's what ill try him on for now. Thanks for everyone's help, I really appreciate it! :)

I am in LOVE with ADM Alliance Horse feeds, My horses are on the "Ultra Fiber" and I have watched them change drastically in look and behavior for the better in less than a month. I will never feed anything but this:) I was feeding Strategy Healthy Edge prior to this........

Oliveren15 are you sure they have Strategy? I live in Canada and this is a purina feed that I thought was only sold in the states. Canadian feeds would include Trimax, Evolution Elite..etc.

Just a slightly off topic question, even if you feed store doesn't have it could you get them to order it in? I live on a smallish island a couple of hundred miles from the mainland Britain so our feed stores don't have the hugest range of products ever so when we want a different feed in them we just ask them to get it for us it might take a little while but we can get most things. Just a thought.

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.

rbarlo, some of our independant feed stores might be more willing to do that but for instance, where I live I can get Nutrena & Purina for "name brand" type feeds. Otherwise, it's the local mill mix which IMO is crap, and/or a store brand such as Dumor from TSC. There are other really good feeds available at feed stores in the bigger city areas, but they're all 60-75 miles from me. The "chain" type feed stores won't order the specialty stuff and we don't have any ma & pa type feed stores around here.

I'm fairly certain that they have it in Canada, boomboom, if they don't however, I'm sure I can find something that's better than what the other horses are getting.
