My feedstore finally came down on their price to be comparable to TSC prices on it. So I picked up a bag today to start to transition my horse over. I have a scooper that has a measured lines to give an approximate weght...  textured/ pelleted feed. So the RG  is extruded now right? Does anyone know how many cups equal a 1LB? I dont have a feed scale handy. I just want to make sure I get the correct amount fed.

Still measures very close to the same. A 32 oz drink cup, or just over 3 kitchen measuring cups = 1 pound of Renew Gold new extruded form.

Winwillows, can you explain to me the difference between the Renew Gold and Renew Gold Senior? Are they different ingredients, or same ingredients in a different forumlation?  I just started feeding Renew Gold and I want to make sure I was feeding the best option.

Renew Gold Senior was formulated for active older horses, and high use performance horses (Think Road Warrior here). The Senior is a little higher in total energy, calories, protein and natural vegetable fats. In addition, there is a toxin binder, joint support, more prebiotic and higher levels of vitamin C. While the total NSC contribution is slightly higher, about 3% more, that does get properly digested so there is no risk of creating a digestive disruption and the Senior remains a cool energy feed compared to grain based feeds. At this time, all of our sponsored riders are running on the Senior, but remember, those certainly qualify as "road warriors" so that application would be proper. For most people the original black bag formula of Renew Gold remains the proper one to use. If your horse has Senior horse issues, or is in very heavy use and hard training or stress, then the Senior formula will fit your needs.

Thank you very much for the reply.  The one I was curuios about using it on is just getting legged back up from surgery, so certainly not working that hard yet! If he comes back and stays sound, I may switch him in the future.

I have 2 aged geldings, 20 and 23 that I rodeo with and some added money 4d barrel races. The 23 year old is more of a back up and only run at bigger shows. Would the regular or senior renew gold be more suitable for them? At most 4 rodeos a week (AT MOST) but at least 1 in the short season we have here in MI. For me this is usually June through October. 

 

Thank you!

Thank you!


Both of these horses are perfect examples of what Renew Gold Senior was formulated to help. Active Senior horses have their own issues that are pretty unique. Interestingly, very heavy use mature performance horses have a lot of the same issues and needs as active seniors do. In your case, the Senior is perfect for both of these horses.

Would you keep them on it all year, through the off season?

Yes, all year for these two horses to continue joint support and maintain top line at that age so they come back to condition faster as you start using them more. I am editing to add that in the time off you can reduce the amount fed by about 25%.

Sorry to keep asking questions, but I am still on the fence about making the switch. I currently feed Tribute Kalm Ultra, and have no issues, so I kind of feel like if its not broke dont fix it, but also wonder if something could be better..does that make sense?

I have read that people feed this as a supplement or top dress and some feed it excluseivly with just hay. Do i need to add some form of grain to go with it? One horse is a super easy keeper and my other one is not a hard keeper, but needs a little xtra. I dont want to switch and have him drop weight. Seems like 1lb a day is not very much. They get excellent quality hay and are on pasture except at night they are stalled up. Will I need to add vitamin supplement?  

 

Thanks!

The vast majority of our customers do not feed additional grain if they have access to good quality hay. If hay quality is poor, you are always better off to upgrade your hay rather than spend that money on grain based feed to add to the program. Since you have good hay and pasture, and if your horses teeth are up to date so that they can chew that good hay well enough to digest it, no additional other feed is necessary. Our heavy work performance horses eat good mixed hay, 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of Renew Gold depending on the horse, Redmond salt and water. While it seems that one pound is not enough, rememeber, there was no place in nature that a horse could eat any more concentrated energy. More is actually counter productive in the digestive system, and disrupts the digestion of the primary energy source, the roughage. As far as additional feed in hard working barrell horses go, just look at what pros like Sherry Cervi (1 1/2 pounds RG Senior per day, no additional grain and good hay), Dena Kirkpatrick (1 pound RG per day, very good hay, no grain), Ive Sabens (1 to 1 1/2 pounds RG original or Senior depending on the horse per day, mixed hay, no grain).

Thank you for addressing that question.  I've been feeding RG Senior and adding grain, but have been wondering if I'm adding grain that I don't need to.  She has free-choice alfalfa and is on pasture with free access to her stall, so I think she would be fine if I eliminate the grain.  Maybe I'll look into adding Redmond salt.

Yes, you can take out the grain in your program. I like Redmond salt because most horses seem to eat it better than commercial salt when under stress like high heat or humidity.
