Hi Chrissy,

It is absolutely fine. I do and many many through they years that I know and have always recommended.
Regardless of age- my total feeding program at is always recommended as well.

Let me share this link with you that will guide you with questions from others
and my answers as they relate to several different challenges that may be
present in feeding a senior horse. Some you may relate to now or in the future.

Hope this helps and I appreciate you asking!
