is my horse getting what she needs?
So iv been wondering about my rescue horse Shy(she has a thread under horse talk)who has gained a lot of weight the last few weeks, which is great, but is she really getting everything she needs? she is getting complete feed twice a day a coffee can soaked in water and a little bit for lunch. She is on free feed hay but does not have turn out because she likes to go through fences. she is also getting an omega 3 suppliment and a hoof suppliment.
Im wondering if she is getting enough vitamins like calcium and protien in her diet and what sort of things have this in them? iv been giving her a lot of carrots as i read they have biotin in them and i know biotin helps hoof growth and she has really bad hooves. Someone told me to put an egg on top of her feed everyday for added protien... but im not sure? although some horse cookies have eggs in them.
what sort of things can i give her to add some extra vitamins/minerals? iv heard rosehips are packed with vitamins, anybody know any other things? thanks let me know!
If your horse thinks your the greatest person in the world dont seek a second opinion.
