Anyone ever used Integrity Horse Feed by Star Milling? Asking because the guy that put in the new fencing for the cattle behind me told me that he is also working with this company now and they are thinking of possibly opening a feed store in our town.
He dropped me off a bag to try after I gave him some extra t-posts I had laying around.

Just curious as they have several products and this particular one is marketed as "also good for minis." It is to be fed as a suppliment to forage. Might just be a west coast thing but thought I'd ask.

Can you get a clear picture of the tag showing the guaranteed analysis, ingredients and feeding directions? I'm not familiar with this particular brand, but fairly well versed in nutrition, so happy to help if I can.

Thank you so much Chandab! The lighting in my feed room wasn't great so hope you can read this.

Thank you for the pics. Doesn't look half bad, would like to see actual numbers for sugar/starch, but based on ingredients, I'll guess it's not terribly high, and with the fairly low feeding rate, I'd be willing to give it a try, especially for easy keepers that don't need excessive calories.
How big are your minis? Looking at the information for full-size horses, minis would get 1/2-1# daily depending on their size (I know the label shows mini feeding rate, but I don't think they take into account larger minis, so I'll do the math based on suggested rate for 1000# horse and calculate down to the size of mini before me).

@chandab Thank you for taking a look at this!
One is 37" with a solid build.
and the other two are 35"
For those sizes, 2/3-1# daily sounds like it would be in the right ballpark. 35 and 37" mini are likely to be in the 300-350# range, so roughly 1/3 the size of the average fullsize horse, so diet would be about 1/3 that recommended for the full-size. I'd start with that 2/3# (well, work up to it), give it a little time, and see if you need to increase to the 1#.
