I used it last spring/summer during our heavy breeding season on my young stud. It helped him keep his weight and he loved the heck out of it. Did you get a bad bag maybe? The company is wonderful to deal with I have been told. If you open a bag and it is off, they will replace it.

definitely call them if you think something is wrong with the feed. They are an amazing company and will do whatever needs done.

But to answer your question, no. I have not ever had any of my horses stop eating any of the BB feeds (including Omega Force). I will* say that because it is a low sugar feed, they tend to not like it as much if anything else is offered to them. For example, I gave mine a little bit of Triple Crown Senior and now all my spoiled brats get a little in their buckets or they plain won't eat anything else without it.

Does it have a different smell at all? I've gotten a couple of bags recently that had a "stale" smell, and my gelding ate it but much slower than he normally did.

Once I realized I contacted my BB rep and she helped me out- we figured out by the tag numbers that they were older bags and she is going to replace them for me.

Yes I actually have had a horse go off it, I contacted my rep and explained the bag had a bit of a fishy smell. She told me they had made an adjustment and some bags got a bit more oil than supposed to. My bags were replaced immediately.. no must, no fuss.. Bluebonnet stands behind every single product they sell. Tremendous company with the highest of integrity. I love omega force but I'm not using it currently because I'm not doing a whole lot with my boys for the time being.

OMG YES. I have one now that has been on Bluebonnet feet for about 8 years. Since moving to Ardmore where they make the stuff. I had him go off of the Omega Force, Intensify Senior, Horsemens Elite Senior.

Just thought I would add that now I am feeding him the Renew Gold with Oats and Alfalfa pellets that I get from Bluebonnet as they are smaller pellets than what Tractor Supply carries and easier I guess for him to chew. Just had his teeth done and he goes off the Bluebonnet feed. I thought it was because the temp drop and the grain was cold and hurt his teeth but he is eating the Renew Gold now so I am not sure what is going on. He was also on Forco but now he sifts that out.

been feeding Bluebonnet for over 25 years, never ever had a problem with any of their feed. The feed stores I bought and buy from now always have fresh feed, the feed never sits there for long always being moved..

I had someone tell me that their horse was on the Bluebonnet and they would have to change it every so often as they would just lose interest in that particular kind, whether it be the Omega Force, Elite, Intensify.

I had the rep and their nutritionist tell me I was feeding too much. Decreased the amount and she is not finishing it. Have put her on Gastrogard but now I’m considering changing to Zesterra. Just in case it’s hind gut ulcers. But until she stopped eating the Omega Force, never had a issue with her eating. I wonder if they changed formulations or if the fish oil could be causing issues with horses going off it. I was told they never have issues with horses not eating it.

We had the same issue about 10 or so years ago with Purina Ultium. Too much oil. Our guy would just not eat that bag. Get another bag, he ate just fine again. Once we started looking though, we could see more oil on the top of the bag.

We never had issue though with BB Omega when we fed it to him, but he is on another BB feed now due to his age.

I just put everyone on BB Natures Blend I love this feed, no dust and super easy to feed. It's not covered in molasses so in this cold weather it doesnt brick on me and my boys love it and clean it up. And it's easy on my pocketbook!

Don’t mean to make ya jealous.   

But... It is really great stuff. 

I think there are ‘gearing up’ to make it a more national feed. We have been with them a long time and they just keep expanding.

Corporate must have a great strategy or 5-Year Plan... because they are expanding and doing very well where they go.

Bluebonnet just made it to southern CA finally. Wanted it for years. Lol but I’m going to stick with molasses and soy free for mine and just keep them on RG.

Contact your rep - seriously, BB is great and easy to work with if a bag is "off" or if your horse just won't eat it.

I've been feeding it for a few years and love it.

Instead of changing gastrogard and zesterra - it is truly worth the time and money it to get a vet to scope for ulcers if you think that is a problem and why your horse is going off feed.

She was eating the Omega Force. But suddenly went off it. Started back to eating it, but takes sometimes 2 hours to finish. There is no rep for this area. So BB keeps referring me to a rep that really doesn’t care because it’s not her area. The store where the feed was bought has a owner that is rude and thinks that a horse going off the feed is not a concern. So I’m pretty much done with Bluebonnet. I just bought a new bag of Omega Force and B.B. will not take it back. And I’m sure not going back to the store where it was bought due to their rude employees and owner

That doesnt sound like Bluebonnet at all to not make it right. So the feedstore wont take the bag back? Sounds like a feedstore issue not a bluebonnet issue.
