Re: [RC] RE- senior horse feed - Rae Callaway

I , also, have a near toothless gelding.  My Old Man, Jerry, is 37 this
year.  Purina Sr doesn't do a thing for him and he starts to lose weight
drastically.  What works with him is Nutrena Sr.  Not all senior feeds are
created equal.  Do some research and find out what works best with your
horse.

I have tried almost all the Senior Feeds I could find in East TN.

 I have a 31 yr old with TWO teeth, so he gets mush BP chop hay and we
 decided on Purina EQUNIE SENIOR. While I do not really care for
 Purina  - another issue  - this stuff really does appear to work well
 with him

Of all the senior feeds I've checked out, Purina's Equine Senior sure
seems
to be the most palatable.  It is the only "big name" product that I buy as
well, and I likewise have two nearly toothless horses doing well on a
ration
similar to what you describe--our version is beet pulp, alfalfa pellets,
and
Equine Senior, briefly soaked into a palatable mush (not soup).  Both are
fat, sassy, and healthy.  Some of our others are also on Senior in
addition
to their hay--although they still have sufficient dentition to do ok on
the
hay, the Senior just seems to help out.  (Having 7 stallions over the age
of
21 here, as well as some older mares, geriatric nutrition is something
that
interests us a great deal....)
