Absolutely love the stuff. Especially for my running bred horses. However, I'm having some issues with those doing the feeding for my horse. Im having to keep him at my folks place for now 14 hrs away. Mom is feeding the cheap rice bran that comes in the big brown paper bag. It's not stabilized. Takes a month or more to feed out and is sitting in a tin feed room in humid and soon to be hot fl. I can't seem to get them to change so in just going to order my own and ask them to feed THAT to my guy. I haven't looked at RB in a while and though I'd see what everyone's opinion was on powder vs pellet vs oil and which brand.
On a side note, what are its effects on horses who have foundered?

Pellets would probably be easier for them to feed because they won't have to mix with water, which you don't have to necessarily mix it with water but it won't stick to the top of their mouth like peanut butter. Max-E-Glo is the best in my opinion but you could also look into Renew Gold.

I've been told not to feed it to horses that have founder or suffer from Laminitis because of it's high phosphorous levels which contributes to low Calcium levels and you want to feed high calcium to help with hoof health. However, I feed large amounts of alfalfa to my gelding that suffers from laminitis and I also feed him rice bran and he processes it just fine. Have never noticed rice bran causing his feet to get sore.

The ricebran I use is stabilized and FORTIFIED. Meaning it has a 1 year shelf life AND it has added calcium to balance out the ratio. If you have a tractor supply you can get max-glo which I believe is the same way.

MaxE Glo, Natural Glo, and in some places Satin Finish are all made with the same technology we brought to the equine market in the 1980's. All those have calcium added. There is no nutritional advantage to pelleting, though some horses will eat it better. Since these are calcium balanced there is no issue on laminetic horses. When fed with any alfalfa in the diet, added calcium would not even be needed due to the low general feed rate. These were labels that we owned or were involved with until we sold that company in 2006. We currently use the same technology of stabilization in the stabilized rice bran part of the formulation used in Renew Gold.

I just started the MaxE Glo pellets tonight on my 37 year old gelding. Is there anything I need to add or do besides just feed it with his regular feed and supplements? (He's on Purina Sr Active, beet pulp, and Platinum CJ.)
