When trying to create a balanced ration for their horse with as low an NSC% as possible many horse owners are stymied when it comes to the hay portion of the diet. A number of factors make it difficult and often impossible to determine the actual NSC value of their horse's diet:
1. They only get hay in small batches - so even if the hay is tested, by the time they have the results the hay has changed and so has the NSC%.
2. They get the hay tested and it comes back high in NSC but it is their only supply option.
3. They board so they have no control over the hay source their horse receives.
Triple Crown Safe Starch Forage supplies the horse with its' entire diet - forage as well as vitamins and minerals. The product is 6% fat and contains the EquiMix technology found in all Triple Crown feeds. The grass hay used in Triple Crown Safe Starch is specially selected for low NSC levels and the product is molasses and grain free.
