You know how feed companies say to feed a minimum of "xyz" amount of lbs per weight of horse? I have been told that if you do not feed the minimum your horse isn't getting all of the benefits/nutrients of the feed. I have my senior mare on 3 lbs of Triple Crown senior and it is plenty aside from her hay (forage first with me.) She would get over weight if I gave her more. So, tell me this, if I eat a half of a banana am I not getting nutritional benefits from it as opposed to eating a whole one? What if I only need a half of a banana? Eat healthy but less of, maintain a balanced decent weight, right?
I have always wondered if money/sales were part of pushing higher amounts.
