good feed?

Hi. I just wanted your input. What do you think about Blue Seal Vintage Victory.

How did you locate this forum? internet

Re: good feed?

Hi Kevan,

Blue Seal Vintage Victory seems to be worthwhile in that it contains beet pulp and rice bran. It also contains oats, but it does not indicate the level of oats in the feed. If oats are first on the list of ingredients, for example, then I would not recommend it. However, if structural carbohydrates such as beet pulp and fiber nuggets are listed first, then it is much better.

They advertise something called a "Triple Energy Release System" that they trademark. I really have no idea what that is, except that they claim it is a timed-released system of release nutrients into the bloodstream. I am skeptical about this.

Also, the protein level is low. This would be a concern for a growing or performing horse.

So, it has plusses and minuses.

All the best,

Dr. Getty
