    The complete mineral analysis goes through selenium, and all vitamins and minerals there are like 20 on the list including all the ones you mentioned.

    Fortunately, or unfortunately, however you look at it, there are more than a few companies who just put out a bare bones analysis on a website, but reality is that it includes a heckuva lot more than what's there. I don't at all for a second think this product has only those things in it

    It's really REALLY annoying that they do this, but they do. I'd want to see a picture of the tag before making a real judgement on it. I've just seen too many of these whose web presence makes it sound like they just slapped a few things together, but based on the tag, it's a much more comprehensive product

    That's true. There is a Buckeye product I've used in the past where the "guaranteed analysis" part listed some ingredients, but if you read the actual ingredient list there was a lot more stuff in there, just not actual amounts. Which was a little bit of a PITA.

    It really is a pita. I do think some companies are waking up to the fact that we horse owners in general are becoming a bit more savvy to this stuff, but omg the changes they are making in that area are worse than thick molasses going downhill in Alaska in Winter!

    I have actually had him off the soy for a week now. last Saturday I had gone to buy my all phase lite and tack store was out, and not getting more in before today so I reluctantly went with the step seven which does not have soy in it. We have noticed the past few days his coat is actually getting more shinny. Not sure if that is just the change but interesting.

    Not sure if island Horse has soy either (hoping not), but all I can say is, their coats glow, even the horses who rarely get groomed, so something must be working with it.
