and my older guy is losing weight again. He has COPD so his basic metabolic requirements are quite high. I starting feeding him Pennfield after reading recommendations here on COTH. He does quite well on it but now my local store doesn't carry it. He is a picky eater and, while he does okay on Purina Senior, he stops eating it after awhile.
My schedule and barn setup doesn't permit soaking beet pulp, hay cubes and the like and I'd prefer not to feed rice bran because of the problems it can cause.
Does someone have suggestions for a commercial feed?
I live in Chantilly, VA but I ride in Anytown, USA
Where are you located in VA? Tri-County (Marshall) sells it as does Clifton Saddlery (Clifton). If neither of those are in your area, would it be possible to find out who the nearest dealer is then try to find one of their clients (barns) closest to you and buy your feed from their client?
"If you have the time, spend it. If you have a hand, lend it. If you have the money, give it. If you have a heart, share it." by me
I previously drove through Marshall for work all the time then changed jobs. (I love Tri-County). I thought about driving up there and getting 10 or 20 bags but then storage becomes an issue.
My local store changed ownership and doesn't have enough Pennfield customers to justify ordering it. The nearest store that carries it is 40 minutes away. I was making the trip but then I got a batch with grain mites and it was too much trouble to try and return it and get more.
If Triple Crown is a good alternative, I can certainy give it a try.
