    My local stores have these feeds. Which is the best choice for my 2 year old gelding? I am currently feeding the Nutrena SafeChoice Original. Sadly these are my only options.
    DuMOR Equistages Equine Feed $13.29
    Nutrena SafeChoice Horse Feed, 50 lb. $17.49
    Purina Strategy Professional Formula GX Horse Feed, 50 lb. $17.49
    Nutrena SafeChoice Special Care Horse Feed, 50 lb. $19.99

    I know some people have had good luck with Purina. I have heard not great things about SafeChoice.

    I believe it's because the Original has corn. The Special Care doesn't.

    If you can get Tribute shipped free that is what I recommend.

    Agree try Tribute. Purina Strategy is what started my horse having issues. Mostly with his feet. It has a bad rep for messing up horse's feet. Safe Choice Original is what finally brought things to a head. You just plain don't want a high NSC feed for any horse.

    Special Care, hands down. I've fed it. It's pretty decent.
