Wheat Bran for Horses
I was wondering what everyone's thoughts were in regards to feeding wheat bran to horses? I am just doing a little research and any insight would be greatly appreciated.
I was under the impression that wheat bran is safe if it isn't fed on a regular basis. Now, I understand that it has a high phosphorous level, therefore, some extra calcium should be added to it so that no skelatal problems arise. But this is based on a one cup serving of it.
My horses love it, I have read that it is loaded with trace minerals and vitamins, it makes a great mask for any type of meds and such that need to be given to a horse.
I am trying to get my horses off commercial feeds and get them going more organic and natural products - this is why I ask so many questions!
Thanks everyone! I look forward to reading your replies!
The difficulty lies not in the new ideas, but escaping the old ones.....
