Feeding is such a confusing thing for a lot of people. So many things out there, so many different brands and not to mention all the supplements. I used to throw all kinds of stuff into a mix and almost never saw a result I liked.
So many different horses and disciplines, ages, health issues that determines how and what we feed.
If you have a rescue horse and it is severely underweight, what would you do to get this animal back on track?
A young horse you want to have grow?
A young horse starting some training, light to hard?
To maintain a riding horse used 2-3 times a week? Again, light to hard work.
A show horse that you are getting ready for show. Be it Western pleasure to barrels to racing?
A senior horse?
Teeth or no teeth?
My point to this thread is some people don't know the answers to these questions. Having a thread based on just feeding and experiences may be very helpful. One thread to look everything up.
There doesn't need to be Any arguing as Everyone has what works for them. Just like your clinicians for training, its nice to take a little info from each clinician and do what works for them.
In my opinion, I think there is way too much crap being fed to our horses. I believe that its not about the health of the horse but about making money off of people. Things that aren't really necessary. I only want the best for my horse and I'm sure the rest of you do too. But how far and how much are we spending when maybe we really don't need to?
