Performance Nutritionist Q&A

Customer: “What’s the best feed for a racehorse?”
Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella: I would recommend supplementing your horse with Trifecta. It is the perfect supplement for a high-performance horse, such as a racehorse. It will provide your horse with a complete vitamin/mineral supplement, hoof and hair supplement, gut supplement, and a powerful joint supplement, which is very important for a horse that body is heavily taxed from performing. This along with high-quality hay and a concentrate should ensure that your racehorse can perform at his or her highest level.
Customer: “I am battling with what horse feed to give my gelding. He is a 9yr old barrel horse in training. He has a heavy workload. His coat and hooves are healthy. He needs to gain a little weight and muscle( i just bought him). I usually prefer a textured feed and want something is more natural and healthy while giving him every component he needs. I also am looking for affordable.”
Answer by Equine Nutritionist and Owner, Del Johnson: If you are in the area of a Coastal Store get our complete feed, Simplete. Simplete Senior/Active would be perfect for this horse. It will look to be expensive per bag….but is feed at 2 lbs a day and you get so much. All of our performance horses are on this. Truly amazing. If you cannot get Simplete I suggest that you feed a grain of your choice with Super Weight Gain. It provides all Horse Guard vitamins and minerals plus additional probiotics, oils, and protein supplement.
