“I am battling with what horse feed to give my gelding. He is a 9yr old barrel horse in training. He has a heavy work load. His coat and hooves are healthy. He needs to gain a little weight and muscle( i just bought him). I usually prefer a textured feed and want something is more natural and healthy, while giving him every component he needs. I also am looking for affordable.”
Answer by Equine Nutritionist and Owner, Del Johnson:
If you are in the area of a Coastal Store get our complete feed, Simplete. Simplete Senior/Active would be perfect of this horse. It will look to be expensive per bag….but is feed at 2 lbs a day and you get so much. All of our performance horses are on this. Truly amazing.
If you cannot get Simplete I suggest that you feed a grain of your choice with Super Weight Gain. It provides all Horse Guard vitamins and minerals plus additional probiotics, oils and protein supplement.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have more questions.
