I absolutely loved your recent podcast on Grain Facts. I really related to reading the “cool and calm” feed bags😳 Before you released your feed I actually refused to feed a bagged feed and completely gave up on trying to find a feed that was
a) healthy for the horse
b) had high enough fibre and low starch
c) didn’t have any soy
And d) didn’t have grain or grain byproducts.
I am ecstatic about the complete formula it saves me money and time buying lupins, mineral mix ect... and pretty much making my own ‘deconstructed hard feed’. The complete formula is THE ONLY hard feed I would ever feed my horse🦄 I am so glad you are educating the horse community on proper nutrition and gut health! Keep up the amazing work🥰
