Product Description

Sentinel Performance LS, a Nutrient Release Formula feed, is the new generation in equine nutrition formulated specifically to enable equine athletes to meet their genetic potential and excel in the many aspects of performance. Exclusively formulated with high fat, high fiber and low starch/sugar ingredients, it is an ideal choice for equine athletes involved in a variety of competitive disciplines as well as horses with elevated caloric requirements such as hard keepers and rescue horses. This unique formulation of Sentinel Performance LS is also recommended for certain horses with challenged digestive and/or metabolic systems. A pressure cooked feed offers a safe and natural way to provide essential nutrition and extra calories to performance horses and is easily digested for optimal nutrient utilization.

Features & Benefits

100% Extruded Form/Healthy Rate of Intake

The light and airy nature of pressure-cooked feeds may facilitate the breakdown of feed for horses while encouraging slower consumption and more thorough chewing. A slower rate of intake with more complete chewing may help minimize the risk of digstive upsets, such as colic and choke.

Low Starch and Sugar Ingredients

A low-starch and -sugar diet is often recommended by veterinarians and nutritionists for horses with a history of metabolic and digestive challenges, such as Cushing's, insulin resistance, tying up, DOD, EPSM, colic and laminitis.

Sequential Release of ‘Cool’ Energy

Sequential Release of ‘Cool’ Energy —A specific balance of fat and fermentable fiber provides safe calories at different rates to the body to meet the complex demands of the equine athlete.

Pre- and Pro-Biotics

Direct-fed microorgansisms and fermentation products aid in maintaining healthy digestion and active microbial fermentation for sustained nutrient digestibility, absorption and assimilation. These additives may support the presence of beneficial bacteria in the gut, resulting in sustained horse health and a more stale digestive tract environment.

Built-In Fiber

Highly fermentable fiber sources such as soybean hulls, beet pulp, alfalfa meal and rice bran support healthy digestive activity while providing extra calories in a safe and natural form.

High Nutrient Density

High Nutrient Density — Provides more actual nutrition by weight; you may feed less while delivering more of what
your horse needs for optimum health and ideal body condition.

Stable Digestive Environment

Stable Digestive Environment — Direct-fed microorganisms, yeast culture, fermentation products and mannanoligosaccharides (MOS) aid in maintaining healthy digestion and active microbial fermentation for sustained nutrient digestibility, absorption and assimilation. These additives, including guaranteed levels of Bacillus species, may support the presence of beneficial bacteria in the gut, resulting in sustained horse health and a more stable digestive tract environment.

Fixed Component Formula

A consistent formula, bag after bag, featuring only the highest quality ingredients, may help to prevent sudden changes in the diet to maintain digestive health and function.

Healthy Skin and Hair Coat

Healthy Skin and Hair Coat — Highly digestible fat from Soybean Oil and Flaxseed (sources of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids) helps provide extra calories for maintaining ideal body condition and helps promote a healthy skin and hair coat.

Brain and Visual Support

Brain and Visual Support — Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), an Omega-3 fatty acid, is a structural component of nerve cells in the brain and eyes and a key component of heart tissue. Studies have shown that DHA is important for mental and visual development and plays a key role in the anti-inflammatory process.

Immune System Support

Immune System Support — Sentinel incorporates an Advanced Antioxidant Package containing Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Bio-available Selenium, Chelated Zinc, Copper and Manganese plus Methionine. These nutrients aid in maintaining the integrity and strength of cells and tissues in senior horses, helping to sustain health and wellness under the stresses of aging.

    We love this feed. We have a 27yr old and a 3yr old that’s both have filled out and feel great. Our vet recommended us try this feed and so glad we did.

    Eva Burton

    Consistent performance with both Hunter ponies and Eventing horses. Cool burning feed. Slick, glossy coats, great hooves. Very cost effective. Have fed for about 7 years and would not consider changing.

    Extruded, high in fat and reduced in sugar and starch! Extremely efficient and safe feed.

    Orchard Equine Retirement

    At Orchard Equine Retirement we strongly believe that retired horses require the same high quality feed, health care, and facilities as performance horses. Our farm never lowers its standards thus we feed have been feeding Blue Seal Sentinel for almost 20 years. Previously we fed a pelleted complete senior feed that was one of the first senior feeds however it was drenched in molasses. We also had problems with horses developing Choke, a problem we were told others were also having problems with.
    Blue Seal’s feed representative explained to us the benefits of a 100% extruded complete feed including research studies demonstrating that horses can absorb 30% more nutrients from extruded feeds. That in conjunction with low starch, low sugar, increased safety from colic and laminitis , and the feed’s turning to an easily consumed mash when water is added sold us on Sentinel. We’ve been feeding Sentinel Performance and Senior ever since.
    Not all of our retirees like the higher fat content in Performance, however I know from almost two decades of using Sentinel Sr and Performance that horses will gain weight even on Senior.
    Seiko , in his 30’s, cannot have any forage so he lives on Sentinel Senior consuming 24 quarts a day. He looks fabulous!
    Houdini, 28 OTTB was always a hard keeper, but not when he started eating Sentinel Senior. Just like Seiko he can no longer consume forage. He looks the best he’s ever looked.
    I recommend Sentinel to everyone because it is a safe high quality feed.
    We believe “you are what you eat” and we feed only the best to our clients’ retirees.
    Thank you Blue Seal for a GREAT FEED!
