Our Safe Harbor rehab horses are on a diet appropriate to them. We generally select from the following feeds:
Triple Crown Senior
Nutrena Safe Choice Special Care
Purina Omolene 300
Almost every feed we use can be purchased at Franklin Horse Supply in Franklin, TN. Franklin Horse Supply keeps a donation log for Safe Harbor and you can call them and put money on account for horse feed for Safe Harbor, or use the store purchase option to purchase a donation of a bag of feed for Safe Harbor. (their phone # is (615) 790-7860) The average cost for a bag of feed for a horse is $20. Most of our horses eat approximately 5 pounds a day, so three bags lasts a month.
For a few of our special needs seniors that are on an all feed diet, they eat almost 100% of their daily intake in feed because they are unable to chew forage. For these horses who are on a mix of soaked feed and soaked alfalfa pellets they use approximately 9 bags of feed a month. The special needs horses in this category right now include Kit Kat and Zaranna.
