    RITT, You are getting some good advice but remember this forum is inhabited by predominantly American owners and the names of the products will be different, the bugs will be different and the formulations for the specialised feeds will be different from those to be found in Britain.

    The climate in the US can vary dramatically from that which we experience in the UK.

    It might be a good idea for you to phone up one of the British horse feed suppliers and to ask for the nutritionist. As for killers of local bugs and lice - go into your local Countrywide and ask the manager.

    Nuance in English

    OFF TOPIC SUBJECT - Nuance in the English language

    RTT. You (and your resued horse) are welcome on this forum from wherever you originate - so long as you can speak and write English well enough to be understood. Your own written English is excellent and could easily have been posted by an educated English woman. (I even wonder if you speak without a slight accent?) No one would have guessed from your writing alone that you feel a need to excuse yourself by referring back to your nationality.

    Speaking as an Englishman, who speaks British English as a first language, I recognize that a 'foreigner' is a guest in my country and must be treated with friendliness. I must help you to learn how to speak my language to whatever level of competence you can acquire. The problem is that the English language presents plenty of opportunities for misunderstanding. There is also the matter of 'nuance'. Some words have secondary meanings and in a modern multi cultural society the descriptive term, 'foreigner' is one.

    Collins dictionary gives the word 'foreigner' a second meaning namely : "outsider". Your choice to use the word 'foreigner' to describe yourself is somewhat harsh. It is a slightly belittling thing to do. You have learnt to write my own language incredibly well and I must give you respect for doing so. You are no 'outsider'.

    A 'foreigner' is someone from another country, passing through, without making any real attempt to learn English or to assimilate. For example, strictly speaking I am a foreigner when I visit the USA. But I have never been so called and I suddenly realize that I would be offended if an American ever described me as such.

    Enough, all I will say now is: "Welcome to this international club of horse lovers."

    I still don't know what a bowl is but I wouldn't be feeding him wheat bran. You're not feeding enough high Calcium feeds that would balance out the super high Phosphorus (1 Ca:10 P meaning there's 10x more P than Ca).
