Great Substitute instead of sweet feed Review by Heather

I used this on my young mare and it was perfect for her because it wasn't too much energy added and she loved it!

Highly recommend Review by Rtf6393

I have a thoroughbred I barrel race and she keeps getting ulcers in her stomach so our farrier recommended this feed and because she was leaving a lot of feed behind even after we got the ulcers taken care of and now she cannot get enough of this stuff and hasn't gotten an ulcer since! I would recommend this to any horse owner!
