    Anyone know anything about this brand?

    It's what the barn owner offers, and I'm thinking of transitioning our gelding over to it if it's comparable to the Triple Crown Senior. Mostly because it's a pain in the backside to go 40 minutes away to pick up Triple Crown.

    Anyone?

    Which one of their feeds do they use (to compare to TCS)? I really like the company and think their products are very high quality.

    Something called Releve is what she feeds. She has some geriatric horses that are the healthiest I've ever seen.

    Yup I like it a lot! There's a lot of soy in it, but TC Senior (and most other feeds) has soy too. Fiber is very high, fat is high, NSC is 10% which is awesome. I really like KER products. They seem to do a lot of research for their products, and have high quality stuff.

    She does a good job on feeding. We had a mild colic about a week ago- Mr. Sensitive Stomach wasn't drinking enough water due to the weather changing so rapidly.

    She had no objections to feeding soupy mashes and soaked hay for the past week just to make sure everything kept moving. He didn't lose any weight or any enthusiasm for eating, thank goodness.

    Needless to say, what a week. Sigh.
