An amazing life hack regarding horses goes like this - "Less is more!" and "Keep it simple!" People tend to leave tons of time and money in special equipment, tons of supplements and various feeds, gadgets and just stuff, while most horses are perfectly happy with a simple, roughage based feeding which is appropriate to their natural needs, a block of salt or some loose salt, clean water, large pastures or paddocks in which to romp in 24/7, a few horsey buddies to play and socialize with, and a patient, forgiving handler. It really saves resources if a single horse has nothing more than a saddle, a halter and a bridle, all the hay he can eat and maybe one fleece rug for walking off in cold weather. :)
I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
