Nutrena SafeChoice Maintenance Horse Feed, 50 lb. is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 356.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feed for easy keepers Great feed for easy keepers. My 14 year old fox trotter mare I adopted from a rescue 4 years ago was malnourished and so I poured feed to her. Now she is an air fern and only gets pity feed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased Am quite happy with this feed for my senior horses. A small amount of this plus some Enrich 32 supplement and 24 hours per day on grass in a big field seems to do the trick. Weight maintenance is perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Feed breaks down to dust I've been using this feed for a few years, when trying to manage his weight better. I only buy 3 to 4 bags at a time but it seems like the past year or so that something has changed with the way the feed is formulated because the pellets break down really easily. I've kept buying it until I can find another alternative but am mixing it with another grain because he doesn't like eating the dustings of the pellets.

Questions & Answers

What's the difference between safechoice maintenance and triumph 12 percent pellets. What is the calorie difference between the two

Asked by: Ann lindstrom
Hello, Thanks for the question. SafeChoice Maintenance has slightly higher levels of key amino acids, more biotin, as well as guaranteed levels of probiotics. SafeChoice Maintenance is slightly lower in calories, about 100 kcal/lb less, and also is a little lower in sugar. Hope this helps!

The percentages and measures in the Guaranteed Analysis is in what amount of product. How much do I feed to have those percentages and measures?

Asked by: MissZoey
Hello, Thanks for the question. Those percentages are on whatever amount you feed. So with a 12% protein guarantee, 12% of whatever amount you feed is protein. To ensure you provide your horse with the right amount of each of the nutrients, please follow the feeding directions on the tag for your horse's weight and activity level. You can also use our handy feeding rate calculator on our website, just scroll down on this page to the Feeding Instructions section: https://www.nutrenaworld.com/product/safechoice-maintenance-horse-feed. Thank you!

Did company start putting molasses in this feed? Is it still safe for ir and ppid horses?

Asked by: Jen37
Hello, Thank you for the question. This product has always had a small amount of molasses in it. What you should be looking at in terms of dietary requirements for horses with metabolic issues is the total dietary starch + sugar levels (or "NSC"), as many different ingredients are sources of starch and sugar beyond just molasses. For this product, those levels have always been 20% dietary starch and 5% sugar, or 25% NSC. For IR and PPID horses, we would actually recommend SafeChoice Special Care, or if you have very easy keepers, the Empower Topline Balance. Both products have much lower levels of dietary starch and sugar. We hope this information is helpful!

Hello. I have a minnie donkey his weight is 67 pounds but I am not sure what 's the right amount of nutrena for him. Can you please h elp me with that? Also, I have two pet goats ,and I was Wondering if they can eat the same food as my donkey?

Asked by: Lidiam
Hello, Thanks for the question. The feeding rate of SafeChoice Maintenance for your mini donkey would be 0.25 lbs per day. For your goats, they should not be on a feed designed for horses - horse feeds contain too much copper for the goats, which over time can have very serious consequences.

I have always feed a pallet feed and just starting feeding a little sweet feed have always been afraid of colic what are my chances of colic with this feed

Asked by: steve30
Hello, Thank you for the question! First, just to clarify, the SafeChoice Maintenance Horse Feed is a pelleted feed, not a sweet feed. In regards to colic, things you should consider are feeding rate (keeping it low to moderate, or feeding more smaller feedings per day if a lot is needed to maintain weight), starch levels (low to moderate levels), and sudden changes in feed. Generally speaking, colic from feed is due to feeding mis-management, not the feed itself. A sudden change in feed (or hay!), or a sudden significantly larger than normal meal size, are far more likely to cause colic than a regular feeding of just about any feed on the market. In regards to the SafeChoice Maintenance product, it is a moderate starch feed, at a moderate calorie level that should allow most maintenance horses to consume a safe amount of feed that should not be any cause for concern. We hope this helps, please let us know if you have any further questions.

How does this compare to a ration balancer feed. my vet recommended a ration balancer. Im thinking this is similar. am I right?

Asked by: Hoofpick59
Hello, Thanks for the question! SafeChoice Maintenance is a traditional horse feed, for a ration balancer we offer Empower Topline Balance. Tractor Supply also carries that product, so you should be able to pick some up and give it a try!
