Any Good Horse Nutrition Resources?

I was wondering if anybody knows of any good, credible books about horse nutrition. I'm looking to learn some more about the subject. I'm just not too sure if certain titles and authors are better than others. Thanks everyone!

Feed your horse like a horse by Getty isn't a bad place to start. It gets a little thin in spots and can be redundant but it's a good comprehensive look at equine nutrition. NRC's Nutrient requirements of horses is a standard textbook but it can get a little bogged down with research data. Someone needs to write a book that's inbetween these two. A super website is safergrass.org.

Also, if you Google "equine nutrition", any of the .edu sites would be good sources.

Horse Nutrition, Bulletin 762-00 for example

I second 'feed your horse like a horse'. Also Dr Elanor Kellon's site/program is really good, depending how much you want to get into it. Safergrass.org is a good site, with links elsewhere. Hoofrehab.com has some info & links about nutrition & diet. Feedxl.com is a great service/program for diet/nutrition balancing & info. Plenty more books, sites, etc that I think are good, but they're the ones that come to mind...

You guys are awesome! Thanks so much, they've really helped! I've always been curious about nutrition in general and I knew some of the basics surrounding feeding horses, but never really knew where to go for more information. This has been great!!
