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.

 
Purina® Equine Senior® Horse Feed, 50 lb. is rated 4.9333 out of 5 by 45.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT! My horse we just got 2 weeks ago is 200 pounds underweight. In those 2 weeks, he has gained 18 pounds back. We mixed his 10% grain with the Equine Senior. He loves the combination and his weight is already starting to come back and his coat is looking great! For a 19 year old horse to gain 18 pounds in 2 weeks, I think that's pretty amazing!

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 Purina Equine Senior I have used this horse feed for numerous years for my senior aged horses as well as other horses that I need to put weight on. My older horses that are unable to chew hay get all they need in this feed. My first horse lived till he was 46 and my 2nd horse lived until she was 39, thanks to Purina Equine Senior to help keep them healthy.
