This is all on top of her 4lbs of safechoice. Morning feeding is strictly safechoice but at night I have to add everything else.
So what are your ideas to make this easier??
Hi Poppy with the arab!!!
Does she even really need all those additives? I would take a close look and question them Mare Magic
- Its just a herbal type concoction and unlikely to be doing anything at all other than cost you money Daily Dewormer
- NO NO NO. I can't think of a vet who would suggest this any more as its the biggest cause of worm resistance in horses. Enlist in your vets poo sampling programme or worm 4 times a year using a product with a different active ingredient each time - talk to your vet for a routine he recommends if you arent sure yourself Red Cell
This stuff is great for horses who are lethargic, recovering from illness or have been in poor condition but for a healthy horse that's already got a touch of whiz bang NO MSM
Why does she need this? Flax seed oil
Do you need to feed this at all? Safe Choice
This is a really good balanced feed. I don't know which one you are using but I think that you'll find if your feeding the daily amount they suggest it has everything in it to keep your arab fit and healthy without spending money on all the other stuff you're using
