after a rather brisk ride today (i say brisk, we were chased by some cows) :lol: i finally remembered to have a look at the ingredients to the alen and page 'old faithful's special blend' here it is:

where there are stars is where the text was too bad to read
by descending weight:
25%-40% Barley
**-10% molasses#Maize
calcium carbonate
expelled linseed
oat straw
sodium chloride
Di-calcium phosphate
expelled soya oil
FOS/MOS prebiotic
herbs (they wrote herbs twice) :roll:

and it says:

Protein 10.0%
Fibre 7.0%
Moisture 13.3%
Vit A 10,000 iu/kg
Vit D 1,500 iu/kg
Vit E 80 iu/kg
OIL 3.0%
Ash 7.5%

what do we think then?

The stuff I use is about 20% protein, 4.5% fat. I can't remember the fibre content off the top of my head. It's made specifically for rodents and is very similar to the type used by laboratories (which I also use sometimes).

I was looking at horse food yesterday and considering using it, but the pellet size was too small to work with my system.
