Okay, I got Purina Ultium Growth at the feed store today. I talked to a guy there, and he said the only difference in giving him that versus the senior feed is that it has more fats and proteins which he said is better for younger horses. It’s low in sugar and starches, so I’m assuming it will work well?

Well the guy at the feed store is an idiot then. The actual regular Ultium has more fat then the growth, so not a good reason to claim.

It actually does not have a “low” NSC being it is ~18% last time I checked. I won’t feeding anything over 15%, below that is where we start talking about low NSC.

Can you get any other better quality brands?
