I have been feeding stable mix as a supplement to grass hay that the boarding barn feeds for a few years. It works well for my horses.

I used to feed Ultra Stable Mate as well. It was a good grain supplement without the corn that most vets insist horses should not have. I didn’t need the Glucosamine HCL or the Chondroitin Sulfate but Stable Mate had corn in it so I paid the extra price to get the mix without corn. Then several years ago you changed the receipe and now put corn in Ultra Stable Mate. Stable Mate isn’t on your web page any more.

We have limited storage so so now I use an old barrel and buy what ingredients I can from the old Ultra Stable Mate mix and mix it myself which is time consuming and messy.

Can’t you make a grain supplement without corn? I would think there would be a big market for it since corn is bad for horses and it’s hard to find a pelleted mix without it.

Celia,

All of our complete feeds are made without corn or molasses and are great ways to keep your horse healthy and fit without extra sugar or getting hot from the corn. Ultra Mate is our only supplement that we carry as it is designed for lactating mares and underweight horses. It is also the only horse product we make that contains corn. If you are interested in our other products please check out our website http://www.elkgrovemilling.com for a full list of products or give us a call at (916) 684-2056 to go over different products. We have different products depending on your type of horse and its activity levels.

I have been feeding Stable Mix to my Arabian mare for many years with good results; however, our new rescued horse is Insulin Resistant and prone to founder/laminitis.

I would love to see Elk Grove Milling market a new product for special needs horses – – cushing’s, Equine Metabolic Syndrome, Laminitis, and Founder prone horses (LOW IN NSC)!

Something to think about.

Thank you!

Hi Linda,

We do mill a feed that is low in NSC. Have you heard of our Timothy Hay pellet, it has 5% rice bran. This would work great for a horse that is prone to founder because the NSC is between 8-9%. Currently because of demand we only offer it in 50# bags. If you have any further questions please feel free to call us in the office at (916)684-2056.

Thank you

Is Stable Mix considered a concentrated feed or a complete feed – in other words, does feeding just a scoop a day to supplement grass hay provide the complete nutrient mix and balance it’s intended for?

Virginia,
Stable Mix is a balanced complete feed. you must feed 5 lbs a day to get the vitamins and minerals for their daily requirement. If you feed it as a complete feed Stable Mix feeding directions say feed at 1 1/2 lbs per 100 lbs. so for the average 1000 lb horse you would start with 16 lbs and adjust per body condition and activity. There are 4 types of complete pelleted rations that offer different protein and fat levels for different discplines. we also have a supplement that is great for adding weight and an aid in hard working horses. I hope that helps.

I have a Standardbred mare that is 10 yrs. old and has tooth issues. We had to remove 2 molars and maybe two on the other side soon. I was told that she needs to be on a “pelleted” diet. I trail ride her. Nothing too demanding but do longer distances than the average trail rider( not endurance tho). What mix can I feed a lot of? ( free feed) Since she is having trouble eating hay. She loves the taste of your “Stable mix”. She will eat the oat hay pellets but isn’t crazy about them. I think I have tried your “forage pellet” and she will eat it if hungry but walks away from it. Is the “stable mix” ok to feed a lot of or no? (as a hay replacement)
Thanks,
Tara in Napa

Tara,
If she isnt eating everything in one feeding then i think it would be ok to feed stable mix free choice. if she is having issues eating then i dont believe she will inhale the pellets but i would monitor her when you start feeding them to just ensure her intake is not at once.

I found out (by looking about as my trailer was being loaded) that you have other stuff that is *not* on your web page — like bedding, dog, cat, and assorted flock feed. Anything else?

That is a hint to update/complete your product line page.

Hi Greg, we do carry a few additional products at the mill. We don’t advertise them on our website because they are not our products and we don’t keep them stocked on a regular basis. We try and keep the business at our retailers, not our mill. FFA & 4-H kids get hog, lamb, and goat feed from associated feed from us but we order that during county fair time because it goes bad sitting in our warehouse during the off season. Customers call the office to see what we have in stock. You can always call and inquire what we have on hand.
