I'm a believer in several of their products- Sunshine Plus, Omegatin, and Performance LS. I like their quality better than Purina, it is more consistent, and the pricing is a whole lot more in the realm of reason.
I posted not long ago about their Performance LS. I couldn't believe the difference in my horses after switching from Progressive to the Blue Seal LS. They are getting stronger and toplines are looking so much better.
I used Vintage years ago and really liked it. I've been using Progressive Products for the past three years and am so happy that I switched back to Blue Seal.
Great! I am going to get a bag today and incorporate it into his grain now. I never heard of the grain and normally used TC, Legends and now Elite. But this sounds like everything I need in one. I just bought some Lysine supplement to make up for the lack there of in his diet, but it seems this is high in Lysine so I might not need it anymore.
Thanks again everyone...I'm making the switch. He is still in work and we're jumping 3ft stuff perfectly fine. But the vet suggested this to maintain his already in good shape system.
We feed Vintage Senior and corn oil to all of our retired Thoroughbreds from the day they come off the racecourse. If one is especially underweight, we feed Vintage Gold of a combination of the two.
Since it's an extruded feed, we can make a mash with it when needed simply by adding warm water. I'll never go back to pelleted feed and grain as long as there's an extruded feed available.
Well, I'll be the one naysayer... I liked BS Vintage Gold & Senior, but saw HUGE improvement with TC Senior instead.
Take it for what it's worth...
I've heard great things about that too. I had him on it for about 2mths and he wasn't too thrilled with it which is why I had to stop using it. He just wasn't the same, energy level wasn't the same and he seemed kinda blah...so we switched him back to the elite and he was happier, but the elite doesn't have all the yummy nutrients that Blue Seal is said to have.
Bummer, I hate that! Hopefully things will get better as we get into spring and the weather gets nicer.
Tell me about it. I keep hoping that things will pick up. I really want to go back to the Muscle Mix and Keraflex..those were awesome. Maybe things will get better for all of us in the next few months.
it's not the edge of the earth, but you can see it from here
And I came back to say, don't get me wrong... I like the Vintage products very well. Especially vs. Purina or such.
I worked with an APHA farm that used VG exclusively. 99% of the horses, from foals, yearlings, broodies through the breeding stallion, were on 2 quarts--dry measured quarts--of VG a day, and not a ton of grass hay. Good hay, enough hay, but not a ton of it and around 8% protein. They all gained weight upon arrival and had lovely toplines etc.
I've used Blue Seal for 5 years, and the boys look great. One was on the low carb and did very well. I really like the hoof supplement Winning Touch EZ Hoof, which has alot of other vitamins in it besides the hoof supplement, very cost-effective at 16.00 for a 5 gallon bucket and works great.
I've been feeding Blue Seal for over 40 years and
love it. I currently feed vintage senior, sport formula,
oats, and hay stretcher to group of 25 and they are all
I guess you could call me the Blue Seal poster girl.
Oh, wait, I am the Blue Seal poster girl, since Fabian and I
are on many of the bage - Sport, Hunter, Strider etc.
We are the dressage pair.
Been using BS products since 1969 when I got my first pony. They have added new products and gotten rid of a few,such as Stampede, but they have good feeds and the ingredients stay the same with each batch. I live right by one of there first mills, have relatives working there and get discounts as well.
