    Hey, Anyone feed the new Dynasty XT Show or Dynasty XT Pro feeds?
    Looks like a possible competitor to Triple Crown Senior?
    Low starch, high fat - has alfalfa, beet, etc

    How do you know the starch level? Blue Seal doesn't include that information on their site.

    You can calculate it per feeding if you know the gram amount of carbohydrate, sugar, fiber and quantity. Not sure what information they provide. Maybe a rep can tell you.

    Well, the spec sheet on the Dynasty XT "Show" feed says: "It is also an ideal choice for horses with elevated caloric requirements such as hard-keepers, rescue horses & metabolically challenged senior horses."

    But molasses is 2nd ingredient and oats are 3rd, so I am guessing this one is not real low starch.....

    Shredded Beet Pulp, Cane Molasses, Whole Oats, Wheat Middlings, Dehydrated Alfalfa Meal, Soybean Hulls, Soybean Oil, Soybean Meal, Steam Flaked Barley, Corn Distillers Dried Grains with Solubles, Dried Ground Beet Pulp, Rice Bran, Ground Wheat, ...

    But the Dynasty XT PRO looks more promising for low starch, maybe just based on the ingredients?

    Here are the top ones I grabbed off the list:

    Dehydrated Alfalfa Meal, Wheat Middlings, Shredded Beet Pulp, Soybean Hulls, Cane Molasses, Soybean Meal, Soybean Oil, Corn Distillers Dried Grains with Solubles, Dried Ground Beet Pulp, Rice Bran

    Those, to me, look quite similar to TC Senior.

    Looks like both are nice products, and I appreciate that they put all the ingredients and details online.
    An NSC # would be nice, but I could contact a rep for that.

    These basically replace their SBP line of feeds - new fancy names and bags. The NSC was relatively low with the SBP's [the 14-10 was 12% and the 12-10 was 19% (higher than I like on this one)]. Blue Seal created the SBP line when they lost their contract to manufacture Triple Crown so they had to create something similiar. The BS reps are very helpful and will get you the NSC #'s if you email them .

    Yeah well nutrena has a low carb grain that is close to 18% and poulins version is 6.3% so ones low carb is not always comparable to another.

    I had excellent results with the BS Dynasty XT Pro 14/10 after trying everything under the sun and more to put weight on a 20 year old stallion. Everything else provided him more energy and he was / is super fit. Could ride 100 miles without any problem. He was well muscled but not one ounce of fat on him. Beautiful shiny coat but ribs clearly visible. Were he human he would have had an impressive physique. As a pleasure horse he looked way too thin! On the advice of my equine dentist I tried the XT Pro 14/10. In less than two months his ribs were well covered (could feel them but not see them). He gained 150 pounds, stayed fit and energetic but not too much so. At that point I cut him back gradually to a maintenance level and he has done well ever since. All of my horses are now on XT Pro and doing very well. I find it economical too. Once the horse is looking the way I want him, I cut back, for some much less than the recommended ration, they stay in good flesh and looking great!

    I had the same results! I absolutely loved this feed. Tried everything under the sun, including TC Senior ( which he ate for a little while and put weight on, but then they changed something about it, he refused to eat it, and lost all the weight ) The XT Pro was a life saver. I found it very similar to the original TC Senior in texture and smell and my horse loved it! Never seen him so enthusiastic about a feed. Put good weight on a previously really hard keeper and a good bloom on his coat. If I wasn't boarding somewhere now that feeds something different (which is working ok, otherwise I would move him) he would still be on it. When I get my own place I plan to switch back to the Dynasty XT Pro.

    The dynasty pro looks and smells like TC senior.

    I use the Pro and love it! I can't say enough great things about the results I've seen with my horses on the Pro. One mare I had that was a tough keeper was finally starting to really develop and come into herself, filling out, improved topline, etc, after changing her to the Pro. My gelding that's a big oaf and was really gawky coming off the track looks much more like a 'grown up' and developed, even though he's not in work right now. Love love love the Blue Seal feeds!
