Well I can't speak for Seminole as I've never fed the brand, but my seniors are on TC Senior and look great! Both are "hard keeper" TBs in their 20's, but you would never know it from how they look.
The quality of ingredients is high and I've never had a problem. The one downside is that the feed can get a brick-like consistency that is hard to break up.
Which one would you feed if given the choice, Seminole Wellness Senior or Triple Crown Senior & why?
Both are 10% fat & around the same % fiber & both are low NSC.
I feed Triple Crown Senior to my 33yo horse and he looks amazing. I never fed Seminole before ( I looked into it but didn't like the ingredients as much) They may be the same fat and fiber but it doesn't mean that the ingredients are equal.
For me personally, it's 6 to one, half a dozen to another. They're pretty much dead even as far as quality, effectiveness and nutrition goes. The reason I like the Seminole Wellness better than Triple Crown is because they put less molasses on their feed. I've never had to "beat" my Seminole feed into submission so I could scoop it out like you do the TC feed bricks. Er, bags... My old, retired broodie is on the Wellness Senior and does just as well on it as she used to the TC Senior. If you have to water your feed down, the Wellness does take longer to get sloppy than the TC; that I do know.

Thanks everyone. I've thought of switching from Wellness to TC senior due to price. TC is about $3 a bag cheaper but I have to drive further to get it. I'm staying with Wellness now. I make all 3 elderly horses here wet mashes so don't want something that takes even longer to break up.

Perhaps I am wrong but I believe that the "brickness" comes from the oil not molasses.
We feed both seminole and TC at the barn. Obviously it's hard to compare different brands across horses but the TC horses do seem to have slightly better coats. It also seems more palatable.
