Were I agist my mare the owner does the rugging and feeding of our horses for us with our own feeds and schedules of course..
Anyway while I was at the stable yesterday the owner was there mixing a feed for a new horse that has just arrived.
The instructions that she was given called for this horse to be fed six kgs of hard feed a day!!! As well as half a bale of hey!! This horse is not underweight and is not stableD it is on pasture full time and in work twice a week..
The horse is a clydesdale cross tb of eighteen years and right now its spring here so the grass is pretty good..
The person who has just bought this horse is im suspecting a little green with owning horses..
Maybe im completely wrong maybe other people on here feed there horse that much in a day also...
Please let me know because I was shocked the amount of feed that was needed ment the agistment owner had to come back from her rounds feeding the others just to carry this horses feed on its own in the wheel barrow ha ha..
I thought over feeding could cause major health issues??
