Horses should consume a ration of long stem roughage (hay) equaling 1 to 1.25 lbs. per 100 lbs. of body weight daily. If feeding more hay, reduce supplement feeding rate by 1 lb. for every additional 2 lbs. of hay fed.
Feeding rate will vary with age, health status, size, temperament, forage quality, activity and climate. Feed at a regular time each day and split feedings into two separate feedings. Do not feed more than 0.5% of body weight at each feeding. If you are feeding more than 0.5% at each feeding switch to three feedings per day.
Provide free choice fresh, clean water at all times except to hot horses that have been exercised. Offer salt free choice at all times and horse mineral can be fed if desired. Bring horses on to this feed gradually over a 10 day period to give the horse’s digestive system time to adapt to the new ration.
Feeding Directions are with hay or pasture. Starting with the chart below, the amounts fed may be increased or decreased by 10% to obtain desired body condition.
Horses sensitive to dietary carbohydrates, consult with a veterinarian or nutritionist for a recommended diet.
