    Default horse feed without soy??

    I have a friend with a 5 yr.old warmblood that tested postive for allergens to many things and among them was soy products. She had him on Triple Crown 30% supplement but it is soy based and has to take him off of it. So far we cant find a balanced diet that does not contain soy. Does anyone know of any???
    Thanks for the help.

    I think ADM has an oat based ration balancer but I think it's hard to find in some areas. My horses are soy free also and I use a base of alfalfa pellets and add beet pulp, oats or rice bran as needed. You can build quite a good ration that way and completely avoid the risk of soy.

    McCauley's makes a product called M10. It's soy free, and designed to be fed like a balancer pellet.

    McCauley's is the only soy-free RB out there that I know of, unless ADM's has a brand newer one lol And unfortunately, the M10 is for alfalfa/higher protein-based diets Hopefully they will come up with one for grass/lower protein-based diets soon!

    We use alfalfa, rice bran and Platinum Performance Equine (that we have them prepare without soy - special order) to balance it all out for our mare who is allergic to soy.

    I am sure I'm mistaken. i knew someone had a soy free RB and ADM is what popped into my head. Thanks for setting me straight! Dang menopause has fried my brain.

    I still like building the ration myself anyway. Less cost and more control over the ingredients.

    I just use alfalfa pellets, rice bran and oats, and a vit/min supplement.

    It's pretty straightforward--1 part alfalfa pellets to 1 part rice bran to 2-3 parts oats, depending on the workload.I tinkered with it for a bit to get it right for my horse.

    I baggie up a weeks worth at a time for the barn, they dump into a feed bowl and add water. Works for us.

    Was it a skin test or blood test? Blood test results have many false positives, FWIW.

    They have StayStrong Metabolic Mineral Pellets, and Mintrate, both RB-types, but I would think if they were soy-free they'd be touting it on the site, and I can't find any reference to it in any ingredients (and no ingredient list is there, so frustrating). The Metabolic pellet is oat-free, so maybe that's what you were thinking?

    More control for sure, but I can't make it be less cost How are you doing it?

    I soak beet pulp, alfalfa cubes and/or whole oats to mix my supplements (California Trace) rice bran and flax into.

    Beet pulp, timothy pellets, alfalfa pellets. You can get cubes or mini cubes in the hay feed. I use Standlee.

    Equipride for a supplement.

    This is what I feed to my soy sensitive horse. This is easy to feed.

    Our feed is custom milled...rolled oats, rolled corn, alfalfa pellets, minerals, salt and a modest amount of molasses. No soy. We also feed beet pulp to some and alfalfa cubes - soaked - to the oldies. Horses look good. It is custom, though - not mass produced.

    Thanks everyone, great ideas and solutions. Ill pass them all along to my friend with the problem horse. By the way , it was a blood test that detected the allergies.

    I would have a skin test done to confirm the presence of allergies. Blood tests are notoriously inaccurate.
