Ranch-Way Feeds



Santero Horse is a blend of high-quality steam crimped oats, steam flaked barley, All*American Horse Supplement, and Star*Shine EquiBloom OmegaPack. The All*American Horse Supplement provides protein, vitamins, and trace minerals. Star*Shine® EquiBloom OmegaPack is a highly-palatable, high-fat, mini-pellet that boosts the fat to 7% in this feed. This feed is available as a textured product.

  • Alltech’s Yea-Sacc & Integral A+ Pro-biotic and Pre-Biotic to enhance the digestive efficiency.
  • Alltech’s Bioplex Trace Minerals  “Chelated” copper, zinc, and manganese bound to amino acids and peptides increase trace mineral absorption and improve the horse’s mineral status.
  • Sel-Plex An organic source of selenium derived from yeast to help fight infection and disease.
  • High-quality lipid-based ingredients  (such as vegetable fat, rice bran, and flaxseed) that provide a source of omega-3 and 6 fatty acids.
  • Added amino acids and B-Vitamins To support muscle growth, plus added B-complex vitamins to promote proper immune function, hoof and skin health, and glossy hair and coat.
  • Yucca extract  For reduced fecal odor.
  • No molasses or corn are added to the final mixture To minimize sugar content

Upon first introduction, Santero should be presented to the horse slowly.  A good rule of thumb is to mix ½ of the new feed with ½ of the old feed for 3 to 5 days.  After the transition, feed according to the following chart:

Level of Activity Santero - lbs/head/day
Maintenance (<3 hrs of work/week) Up to 5 lbs*
Performance (>3 hrs of work/week) 5-12 lbs*

*If feeding less than the amount recommended, then it is advised that additional vitamin and minerals be offered along with the feed to meet the horse’s total dietary nutrient requirements for vitamins and minerals.  As a rule of thumb, for every 1 lb of Santero omitted, add ¼ lb of Vital Edge Pelleted Mineral or 1 oz of Ranch-O-Min 1011 Horse Mineral, daily. Note that the chart is based on the nutrient requirements of a 500 kg (1,100 lb) mature horse and is therefore a simple guideline.  

Always provide a minimum of 1.0% of the horse’s body weight daily in the form of forage (hay or pasture) to maintain gut health.  Note that the chart is based on the nutrient requirements of a 500 kg (1,100 lb) mature horse and is therefore a simple guideline.  Adjust depending on the horse's body condition, age, and level of activity.  Fresh, clean water and white salt should be available free choice.
