“YOUR HORSE LOOK IN PERFECT SHAPE- What does it eat?”- Most of the people use to ask me the same question after looking at my horse. In general, the horse has a small stomach compared to other pets, and they can’t regurgitate or chew cud as cows do.
Proper food products are necessary
Need to be very careful while providing horse pellets, and horse feed as they have a one-way digestive system, so if he eats something which he should not, then you have to wait until it goes through his whole digestive tract to work its way out. When a horse over eats grain can colic, which is a stomach-ache and then some. Colic can kill a horse unless it is caught and treated early enough.
There are several circumstances in which horse feed balances need to be used:
- At the time of grazing, the condition is not ideal, such as during the season of winter where soil deficiency is present. These areas have soil that is deficient in selenium and copper.
- When horses are only fed stored forage, such as hay, supplements will provide balance and protect horses from the risk of laminitis and colic.
- Even when a horse needs to be their best for showing, the right horse feed balancers will improve the quality of their coat, skin condition and ability to perform.
- At the moment when horses are suffering from a specific problem, such as impaired muscle function, poor muscle development, fertility issues, injuries. Even other problems such as sweating from hard work will also need the use of supplements to replace lost electrolytes and salt.
Must look for better muscle development
Performance horses require a unique feeding program to keep them at optimal conditions. Unlike retired and pleasure horses, performance horses need more protein in their diets. The extra amount of protein required is for better muscle development and the function of the horses.
Aside from the extra protein for the muscles, high-quality hay is also a vital part of the diet. In addition, to feed, some grain and lot of freshwater your horse should have turn out time on grass when available and should also have access to a mineral salt block.
Feeding can deliver large loads of nutrients
A lot of forage is also given to keep the horse grazing to decrease the risk of ulcers to which performance horse is prone to. This method of feeding can carry large loads of nutrients into a digestive method that is designed for a constant supply. Termed feeding, it is exacerbated when the horse pellets contain the level of some digestible nutrients that exceed the digestive capacity of the horse’s organs.
End of buzz,
Working out a horse’s nutritional requirements, have the vast array of horse pellets and horse feed. Thus have nutrients needs that can be calculated from body weight and activity levels. Timely providing the feeds in a form that suits the digestive system of the hours.
