    Question Blue Seal's Dynasty XT feeds?

    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.
