What's in your horse's feed?

Hello horse friends!

It's been a long time since I've posted here! Hope all is going well!

So I've getting my own feed from a feed store rather than using the barn's feed. Well it so happens that at that same feed store where I get my stuff at, you can tell them what you want and they can make the grain for you.

So I'm thinking I should try this, it may be cheaper than the feed I'm giving Faith. With that being said, what's in your horse's feed? What are your experiences with different types of feed?

Just throwing this out there...My horse is on Kalm N' EZ (from Tribute). She doesn't get a whole lot of work during the winter, but during the spring/summer/fall she gets worked 4-6 a week for 2ish hours.

I'm really interested in what you guys feed your horses and your experiences!

Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.

My geldings are on pasture 24/7, hay (in the winter) and alfalfa/hay pellets with Equine Total Gold supplement (some of the best stuff I have ever used). They look really good and healthy. My show mare is on the same thing but she also gets some whole oats for energy and Life Data Labs Barn Bag for vitamins and minerals. I used to feed Purina Strategy Healthy Edge and was very happy with it, but my mare wouldn't finish her feed and wasn't getting all the nutrients she should. It will put weight on.
