    Well, I guess I am out of touch with feed bag reality then --- BUT 10/15% is outrageously high in the equine metabolic world I have to manage, when I factor in hay and pasture.

    It's been three years since I switched my horses to a condensed Vit/min supplement that is only 4.25% NSC, which I will stick with until the day something better comes on the market:)

    You have to do the math to find out what the horse is actually eating. My RB is 13% NSC per the bag, but he only gets 2lbs a day.

    Id consider that sustenance feed. I like a 12-14% protein, more than 2% fat, unless Im trying to feed a horse that should lose weight, but I dont want it getting so little feed it will chew things or graze-hungry.
    BOs chubby haffy, probly a candidate for 11/2, and not a lot of it. (qt)
