    *Feed Analysis on post #8

    **Feed Ingredients on pg. 3

    Last summer, I switched my gelding from Nutrena feeds to Sprout feed. It's cheaper, and It seems to be alot easier on my horse's digestive system. BUT. I can't find the Sprout website. I'd love to do a little more research on how good it really is for my horse in the long run..

    My gelding is on Sprout Senior and My mare is on Nutrena Prime.

    I don't feed during the winter, because they get plenty of hay 24/7 so they pack the lbs. on like crazy..

    If someone can give me a link to the Sprout Website, I'd be super grateful!!:D

    **Update** I went to fleet and snapped a shot of the back of the bag. There are the results of what's in the Sprout feed in a following post. Take a look and tell me what you think!!:wink:

    I believe that Sprout is a local brand that is made for Fleet Farm soley to sell; if you were to post the nutritional information, as well as the ingredients of the feed, then some of the food-guru's on here would be able to tell you if it's a good product or not.:)

    Thanks. I probably will.
    One would think that they'd have their own website. Maybe their feed isn't that great, so that's why they don't have one.
    They don't even have it on the Fleet Farm website. All they have there is the sprout dog treats..:no:
    I'll have to go to fleet farm and snap a pic of the back of the feed bag with my cell. lol.

    Alot of locally made feeds don't have sites- I think it's because they only sell locally, so they don't have the need to get the information out across the country. If you were to call Fleet Flarm they could probably either email the info to you, or give you the number to the company that makes it.
