Anyone feed their horses Barn Bag?
« on: October 30, 2018, 07:24:29 am »

I've considered switching a couple of my horses to Barn Bag. They are currently getting Purina Enrich Plus 30 ration balancer, 1lb/day. I'd like to hear from anyone who's using it or has used it in the past. Pros, cons, etc. (Barn Bag is a pelleted supplement that you feed about 1/2 cup/day.

I've never heard of it and the blasted site won't let me in unless I agree to their policies  :-(

Curious as to why you are considering the switch? Isn't it just a different ration balancer? Is it lower in starch than the Purina?

The Purina ration balancer is still a feed. The horses in question are extreme easy keepers and I'd like to supplement vitamins and minerals without adding calories.
