Re: Founder/Triple Crown Complete

Some folks were speaking of Purina Advantage, the beet pulp based horse
feed.  I've had even better success with a newer, premium Southern
States/Agway beet pulp horse feed product called Triple Crown Complete.  As
the name indicates, it is a complete feed and is fine dry and takes to water
terrifically.  It is high fiber (can't remember the figure off the top of my
head) and has 8% fat.  That's the highest fat content I've been able to find
in any horse feed in this area.  Purina Advantage is a really good feed, but
I like this one even better!

Anyone else tried it?  Have you heard of it, Sarah?
