Does anyone feed them? Good, bad, ugly? When I move Nemo back "home" I'm thinking of switching him (haven't decided to which yet) from Strategy Healthy Edge as I like what I've read so far. He is a hard keeper who needs something with high fat and low protein as he's rather sensitive/hot. Thanks for the input!

I put my OTTB gelding on the Fibergized Omega when my vet said he was just a tad thinner than she likes to see them.... in less than a month he really filled in, shined up and overall improved...... except for the way it froze into a big chunk, I really liked it alot!!
I've always heard very good things about their feed, but the problem here in Central Florida was nobody carried them. You had to go 50+ miles to get it and the dealer that did carry it was only opened until 5 weekdays, so you pretty much had to commit your Saturday to buying feed. When you work and have other stuff to do it just isn't feasible. Maybe this new company will expand their market.
There are other threads about the Cargill purchase -- it doesn't appear that the quality or availability of Pennfield will be affected. I switched from Ultium to Fibregized Omega, and it's really helped my horse put on weight. His topline is even filling out. He's a picky eater, and he thinks it's quite tasty. It does clump up a lot, especially in the winter, so I add just enough water to moisten it so he won't choke.
Switched my OTTB gelding over to Fibregized from TC Senior this past summer, not because I was unhappy with the TC but because the Fibregized for me is easier to get and a little cheaper. He's doing great and there was absolutely no change in his behavior whatsoever. He's not particularly picky but he loves it!
