I just use whatever the horse was eating when I bought it and then decide how their body and attitude do and how the amount of feed given is necessary based on what forage they're getting. Eventually I'll take suggestions from trusted friends based on what kind of exercise my horse will be doing, and change. And then watch them again. Sooner or later something perfect sticks.

To ride a horse is to ride the sky.

Actually, I don't really have issues when it comes to buying feed. I feed whole oats and I just have to find a good mill that supplies me with quality oats. Now, when it comes to vit/min supplements, it IS a struggle to find stuff that is soy free, sugar free and also free from any other useless stuff... I can mix straight minerals, but that is, honestly, a chore and very hard to balance your own mix.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

I am trying to start a separate discussion on this, so will not go into it here, but I do not think it is the SOY that is the problem.
