list of micro\macro nutrients needed and amounts
 
Does anyone know where I can find a list of the amount of vitamins\minerals required per day? I am trying to ensure that my horse has the correct amount of nutrients in his diet. I already calculated the total amount that he gets from his feed and supplements, and am looking for a place to get my hay analyzed. I would like to be able to compare the results with the amounts he should be getting to see if he needs anything else in his diet.

There are a lot of good books out there on equine nutrition. I personally like Melyni Worth's Horse Nutrition Handbook. It covers individual nutrients, and explains how to feed for various situations.
