Feeding instructions:
Actual feeding rates required to adequately maintain good condition of individual horses will be affected by individual metabolism and progression rate of aging processes. Therefore, feeding rates may need to be gradually adjusted in some horses according to body condition. Aging horses unable to maintain adequate body condition when being fed the recommended amount of Equine Senior® horse feed should be examined by a veterinarian to determine the presence of potential health issues. Do not feed more than 6 lb. in one feeding and do not feed free choice. Do not mix with oats. Make any feed changes gradually over a period of 7-10 days. Changes in the feeding rate should not exceed 1 lb. per day for each horse. Feed at regular times, at least twice daily, with three daily feedings preferred. Be sure to weigh your feed using a scale. Good quality hay or pasture may be fed along with Equine Senior® horse feed. Make sure your horse is free of dental problems and can effectively chew and utilize the forage. Reduce the amount of Equine Senior® horse feed by 1 lb. for every 1.5-2.0 lb. of hay consumed by your horse. A 1,000 lb. maintenance horse eating no hay would be offered 13.0 lb. of Equine Senior® horse feed. If the horse is eating 10 lb. of hay, then he should be offered 6.6 lb. less of Equine Senior® horse feed (10 lb. of hay divided by 1.5 equals 6.6 lb. less of feed). So in this scenario, the horse should be offered 6.4 lb. of Equine Senior® horse feed (13.0 minus 6.6 equals 6.4). The horse should eat a minimum of 6 lb. of Equine Senior® horse feed per day to meet the minimum daily protein, vitamin and mineral requirements. For best results, do not feed more than 1 lb. of hay per 100 lb. of your horse's body weight when feeding Purina® Equine Senior® horse feed. Do not feed less than 6 lb. of Equine Senior® horse feed per day when fed with hay. If your horse becomes overweight eating this minimum amount of feed, then choose a different Purina® horse feed product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I LOVE this horse feed! I am so pleased that you finally started to carry this feed. My 2 older horses NEED the super ingredients in it for continued good health. Their coats, hooves, and over-all body condition has improved on Purina Senior. This feed is the only one that they will eat in the Senior Feed category. They turn up their noses at other brands. We used to have to make a special trip to a different store just to buy this, until you started carrying it. Now, we are ONE-STOP shopping at TSC for feed and other country-living needs. THANKS again TSC!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE it (and its not just for the old guys!) I have a young mustang that was very under weight when i got him and was actually having joint problems due to having no muscle or fat to support his growing bones long story short after trying several different types of grain this is the one i am the happiest with in just the short amount of time that i have been using this i am noticing a difference his coat is healthier he is moving better his muscle tone is evening out and he is getting a nice, healthy layer of fat making him look filled out without looking obese and being as its winter and that means hes usually loosing weight i am impressed!!! he is very picky abt supplements and would have to be coaxed into eating any vitamins or electrolytes but this food has all that in it and he absolutely chows down i know this is a "senior" food but it was very highly recommended to me by several horse people who have been in it a lot longer than me and who i absolutely trust (one being a very prominent vet!) so i tried it and am very happy i did!!!! so if you are looking for a food that has everything they need without a bunch of junk or sugar here it is (for all ages!!!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Purina Senior! I too have a old guy. (30 y/o Quarter horse) He doesn't have many teeth and cannot eat any hay or grass. His life depends on Purina Senior because it has the hay built-in! Although he requires 20 lbs a day in Senior feed, it's worth it because I know he is getting the proper nutrion and essential amino acids required to help him live out his years happy and healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Life Saver My twenty-nine year old quarter horse mare, Foxy, has always had a major problem keeping her weight up. On top of everything else, Foxy is a very picky eater. I tried everything under the sun and nothing worked, nothing, that is until I tried Purina Senior Feed. This worked wonders. Her weight slowly went up and she loves her feed, too! I highly recommend this feed to everyone I know who has older horses, and I wouldn't feed Foxy any other feed.
