Product Description

Sentinel Senior, a Nutrient Release Formula feed, is the new generation in equine nutrition formulated specifically for senior horses, prematurely aging horses or horses with poor teeth. Sentinel Senior is a highly fortified balance of nutrients and an exclusive blend of natural additives to meet the increased nutritional demands of the senior horse due to less efficient digestive and metabolic systems. This unique formulation of Sentinel Senior is also recommended for certain senior horses with challenged digestive and/or metabolic systems. A pressure cooked feed offers a safe and natural way to provide essential nutrition and calories to senior horses, prematurely aging horses or horses with poor teeth 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.

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.

    Orchard Equine Retirement

    Best Feed-We feed all our retirees, no matter their age, Sentinel Senior or Sentinel Performance. Being 100% extruded, low starch and low sugar makes it a safe feed for horses with metabolic disorders. We have horses who cannot consume any hay, they lack the molars to even chew fresh grass. We maintain them on Sentinel Senior. We do not feed any other feeds. Sentinel keeps it simple and safe. In the thirty years that we’ve been boarding retired horses we have had numerous horses come to us that are hard keepers or are in poor condition. The horses are often being fed a pelleted senior feed, beet pulp, alfalfa cubes/pellets, and other supplements in an effort to put on weight. We switch them to Sentinel exclusively.
    We keep it simple and we fed them the proper amount, which for horses who cannot consume any forage is 18-24 quarts a day. Our retirees gain weight, maintain it, & look great.
    We feed only the best to our retirees.-and that’s Blue Seal Sentinel Senior.

    I have been feeding Sentinel Senior to my older mare and gelding for over a year. I am VERY PLEASED with the results. This product has turned out to be much better than two other senior brands I was feeding previously. Definitely recommend it and will continue to feed it.
