    They also do a facebook page - Calm healthy horses.
    There is so much to know about feeding and it is just so important to get it right!
    That site has a lot of information I had never heard before. Time to do more research.

    I prefer sites from Vet schools, or researchers, not from a company that had a study done, as I feel that they are prejudiced to the 'feed' and company ;)

    Which brings up a good point. Always verify new information with an independent source, especially with internet sources, because anybody can post anything and call it the truth.

    In principle I agree however I also think you'll find that much of the information on this site is not about selling something.
    I can only say that after years of major problems with my horses, after implementing the information on the calm healthy horses site, my horses have never been better.
    Sometimes it is just worth trying and as long as you can see it is not actually going to hurt the horse - what can you lose?

    I should say that a lot of the so called 'scientific research happens to be funded by these major feed companies.

    This is true, which is why it's a good idea to verify information with other sources.

    One of my favorite resources is TheHorse: Your Guide to Equine Health Care | TheHorse.com

    It was originally targeted to equine vets, but now is open to the public. There is lots of information on nutrition, lameness, health, and protection. They publish a lot of research results and are a very respectable source of information.
