Feeding A Senior Horse
“I have been feeding Purina Sr. Active for about 2 years or so. Lately I have notice more and more whole corn showing up. I spoke with a friend she suggested that I switch him to timothy pellets and a good vitamin/mineral supplement. I live here in Washington and know that selenium is not good here. Plus being a sr. he needs joint, hoof and immune help. I have also noticed that he has lost most of his hair coat but a little still remains. I have wormed him and give him a coconut powder. What would your suggestion be in respects to feeding the hay pellets and your product?”
Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:
I would highly recommend feeding him Trifecta. It will provide him with a vitamin-mineral supplement that provides 3 mg of organic selenium (crucial in selenium deficient areas), a hoof supplement, and joint supplement all in one feeding. The biotin in this product will help his hair coat. In addition the probiotics will help him to get more out of the feed he is consuming.
