SafeChoice Special Care by Nutrena is a controlled starch formula intended for horses with metabolic concerns and easy keepers. It is a corn-free feed that contains a maximum of 10% dietary starch and 3% sugar.
Mad Barn's Feed Bank provides nutritional profiles on +3,000 forages, feeds and supplements used in the equine diet. With our free diet formulation tool, this data can be used by horse owners and nutritionists to design balanced feeding programs for horses in their care.

Feeding Rate: Feeding directions are guidelines to maintain desired body condition and performance. Feeding rates need to be adjusted according to the horse’s body condition and activity level. Divide the recommended daily feeding rate into 2 or more meals per day and feed with good quality hay or pasture equivalent at the rate of 1.0-1.75 LB per 100 LB bodyweight or kg per 100 kg bodyweight to provide a minimum of 50% of the diet from forage. Performance horses may benefit from being fed more frequently. Clean water should be available at all times. Horses that have been exercised should be cooled out and re-hydrated properly before being fed and before having access to unlimited water.
