Two life-stage specific are feeds for (1) broodmares/growing young stock and (2) senior horses. If you look carefully you will often find some similarities between these feeds. They tend to have slightly higher protein, often 14% or higher for the mare and foal feeds. These feeds tend to guarantee essential amino acid levels, because adequate lysine is vital for growing horses.
Senior horses might also benefit from higher key essential amino acid levels because they sometimes don’t utilize dietary protein as well as younger horses.
Manufacturers typically design foal feeds to be offered alongside forage; therefore, these aren’t complete feeds (no additional forage is needed as long as feeding directions are followed), whereas many senior feeds are. This is because some senior horses are unable to chew hay. However, some senior feeds aren’t complete, and it’s important to check for these details.
