Rated 5 out of 5 by from 31 year old horse thrives on Equine Senior We have fed Equine Senior for years to our horses. We currently have a 31 year old Thoroughbred that only gets Equine Senior and he looks great. I truly feel that if he was on any other kind of feed, his body condition would be needing some help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Senior feed I have a 27 year old gelding and he is a hard keeper as far as keeping weight on. Purina Senior feed was what he needed. He eats it very well and I have had no problems keeping his weight. I recommend this feed to anyone I know with Senior horses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent feed for old horses and ponies I have been feeding Purina Equine Senior for over 20 years. I have NEVER had any of my horses or ponies colic that have been on this feed. Also it is very easy to turn into mushy food for very old horses just by adding a little water. It is also low in sugar which is important for my Welsh ponies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maintaining weight for my older horses I love the Purina Senior horse feed. I already give it to my two older horses and have now begun giving it to a third.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 42 Year Old Gelding I have been feeding Puruna Equine Senior for over ten years to my now 42 year old gelding. He gets six quarts of Senior made into a mash twice a day. I love Senior because it dissolves into a mash within approximately 10 minutes. He has done extremely well on it. I had to have his teeth pulled 10+ years ago because he kept colicing on me. I recommend it to all people with older equine. I have tried other brands of Senior pelleted feed but it takes too long to dissolve into a mash & they don't seem to have a good flavor because he eats them but not with gusto. Purina, please don't change this formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 37 yrs young My old horse (37yrs) can be a picky eater and he loves this stuff. It soaks water very well and quickly. He is holding a good weight with this feed. *He cannot have grass or hay* I'd recommend this feed to anyone with an old horse.

I’m considering switching from another senior feed because my horse is not maintaining his weight. Their fat content is 8%. My concern is yours is 5.5% fat. I want to add weight. Your thoughts?

Asked by: Ts Mom
Thanks for choosing Purina. The fat is a bit lower intentionally due to this being a complete ration (replacing hay/pasture) if needed. A senior aged horse eating our Purine Equine Senior at the rate of 15-20 lbs. per day (or more), does not need a fat percentage of 8% in a diet. If you are feeding it at a lesser rate and want to boost the fat, we have the Amplify supplement that may be added as a top dress. The Amplify is 30% fat. Or, if you prefer to feed a Senior product and does not replace hay, the Equine Senior Active is available at Purina dealers, but is not typically sold through the Tractor Supply Company stores. Equine Senior Active contains 10% fat. Feel free to call us if you have additional questions.

I have a older mini mare that has cushings&heaves. Currently I feed Nutrena Safechoice special care (low starch) feed and soaked alfalfa cubes Would you recommend this Senior Complete feed for her ? She's only about 350lbs and lost weight.

Asked by: kcassell
Thanks for choosing Purina. Yes, the Equine Senior would be a perfect product for your horse's needs. You may use it to replace all hay and only feed the Senior (omitting the alfalfa cube addition if you wish). When feeding Senior as a complete with roughage diet, the minimum to feed is 1.3 lbs. for each 100 lbs. in body weight. For a 350 lb. mini that would be at least 4.6 lbs. of Senior each day. This is best to split into two or more meals. You may increase as necessary for additional calorie support. Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Can Equine Senior be fed to an emaciated rescue mini horse. She is 3 years old and weighs 110 lbs. I have started her on Purina horse and pony feed with a top dressing of Nutrena Boost.

Asked by: Country woman
Yes, Equine Senior may be fed to any mature horse (or at least 2 years of age). If younger than 2 yrs, we would suggest the Equine Junior. Feel free to call us and we can discuss feeding directions when using this product. We also have this link that would be appropriate for your miniature horse as well. https://www.purinamills.com/horse-feed/education/detail/refeeding-the-malnourished-horse

Does this horse feed need to be soaked in water? Can it be dry?

Asked by: CPete
Thanks for choosing Purina. This product may be fed with or without water added. If you have a horse not able to chew well, or needing more water intake, then we suggest to add water.

Could I feed it every other day?

Asked by: Katie O1
We suggest the best practice is daily feeding of a product to ensure you do not have any digestive issues. If the product is fed in a large volume, then splitting into two meals is preferred. However, if this is not feasible, then every other day is better than none at all. You want to be certain to avoid any aggressive eating and make certain you are not feeding if the horse is in a "starved" state. This may cause the horse to consume too quickly.

I'm looking for high protein/fat/fiber diet with low starch for a older gelding with Cushings Disease and needs to loose some weight.  Thank you!

Asked by: DinaMac
Thanks for choosing Purina. The WellSolve LS (Low Starch) is a great product if you need some weight loss on an older horse that is still able to eat hay. Or, we also have the Erich Plus ration balancer that is fed at a lower feeding rate, but still supplies total nutrition. Once your horse is not able to chew and digest hay properly, we suggest the Purina Equine Senior. The Equine Senior may be fed to replace some, or all hay, as needed. Let us know if you have any additional questions. If you would prefer to call us, you may at 1-800-227-8941.
