Is there much demand for senior horse feed?

recent advances in equine medicine and nutrition, many horses
are now living longer and more productive lives. In fact,
many horses now perform successfully after age 20 and live to be
over 30. Special feeds for senior horses help them stay
What special nutritional needs do older horses have?
A. Research with senior
horses indicates that many older horses are less efficient at
absorbing or utilizing certain nutrients. The SENIORGLO
feed ingredients have been specially selected and combined to
include added proteins, phosphorus, b-complex vitamins, and
vitamin C that meets the needs of older horses.
Why does MoorMan's SENIORGLO Horse Feed contain NATURAL GLO
stabilized rice bran?
A. NATURAL GLO provides
energy in the form of rice oil and structural carbohydrates from
stabilized rice bran. This enables the senior horse to
more easily meet its energy needs through natural vegetable fats
and easy to digest rice bran. NATURAL GLO also provides
vitamin E, which is important for antioxidant activity.
Is it important to avoid grain overload with senior horses?
A. Yes. Senior horses
often have increased energy needs. SENIORGLO contains
dehydrated alfalfa, soybean hulls, and beet pulp - all very
desirable structural carbohydrates - as important energy
sources. These fiber sources provide energy without
producing the symptoms of grain overload.
Why does SENIORGLO some in 5/16" pellets?
A. Grinding and pelleting
ingredients make them easier for horses to chew, digest and
absorb. Older horses often have difficulty picking up and
chewing feeds, and they often spill and waste a lot of feed.
The 5/16" pellets are larger and easier to manage than
What is different about the feeding rate of SENIORGLO?
A. Most senior horse feeds
have been formulated to be fed at a rate of 8 to 15 lb. per 1000
lb. horse per day. They often contain large amounts of
ground hay or forage products. SENIORGLO is a more
concentrated product designed to be fed at 4 to 8 lb. per 1000
lb. horse daily. By feeding 1.25 to 1.00 lb. of good
quality hay per 1000 lb. of body weight along with the
recommended amount of SENIORGLO, it is simple, easy and often
more economical to meet the older horse's nutritional needs.
Is it important to have a very palatable feed for older horses?
A. Yes. Sometimes
senior horses become finicky eaters. Therefore, SENIORGLO
