I have an 8 year old Friesian gelding who I have had since he was 3. I keep him on Triple Crown Light and I also give Omega horseshine mixed in his feed. He gets about a cup and a half in the am and the same in the pm plus a half of a cup of the Omega horseshine mixed with each feeding plus alot of good grass hay and he is beautiful and in good weight. Horses do not need alot of grain they need good quality hay though and Friesians love their hay. I would stay away from rich hay such as alfalfa and second cuttting hay. Too rich for them. Hope this helps. Denise
