Purina equine feeds have been on the top of the market since 1894, and Equine Senior is one of their, and our, most popular products. But, did you know there is also a formulation of Equine Senior that was developed for working horses? Equine Senior Active horse feed was developed for horses that continue to work into their senior years. This feed may be a more appropriate choice for many of your equine friends; however, it continues to be widely unheard of.
Unlike Equine Senior, which is a complete feed developed for horses that may have problems with digestion, poor body condition, or be lacking teeth, Equine Senior Active is meant for horses that are consuming hay. Because of this, Equine Senior is lower in calories and contains forage, whereas Equine Senior Active has higher calories and is meant to be fed with hay. Equine Senior Active feed contains higher levels of lysine, fat, calcium, phosphorous, copper, selenium, and zinc to support working senior horses. Conversely, Equine Senior has higher levels of vitamins A and E to support the immune system of our aging equine friends.
The feeding rates recommended by Purina were developed for horses on high-quality grass hay or pasture. When feeding alfalfa, like so many of us do in California, reduce the amount of supplemental feed by ½ to 1 pound daily. When feeding Equine Senior with hay, reduce the amount of feed given by 1 pound for every 2-3 pounds of hay. Clean water and salt should be available at all times.

*Always consult your veterinarian before making any changes to your horse’s diet. Any changes to your horses feed should be made gradually over a period of 7-10 days.
Salt is good for horses, it helps replace electrolytes lost in sweat, aids in hydration, and encourages horses to drink water. During the summer it’s obvious that our horses need salt, but they also need it when it’s cold and raining; horses should have daily access to salt, either in a block or with their supplements.
Himalayan salt is something we’ve had on our tables for a while, but did you know you can give it to your horse too? We have small Himalayan salt blocks that will fit in your salt block holder, as well as Himalayan salt on a rope! For horses that tend to over-indulge themselves, these are a great option as these blocks are much harder to bite chunks off of. Himalayan salt is also a great choice for salt blocks that are exposed to the elements as they are more durable to weather and take longer to melt. The great part about Himalayan salt is that it has high levels of naturally occurring minerals, unlike the processed trace mineral blocks which have minerals added during production.
*Always consult your veterinarian when adding to or changing your horse’s diet.*
