    Hi there! I'd like some serious help with determining how good my horse's diet is. I've felt like lately, he's just been receiving too much artificial supplement. I read one of Jessi Mead's books and learned that the horse's digestive tract works too quickly to absorb artificially added...

    Hi to all, I am a new horse owner and I am really concerned about my 12 years old mare's feed. This article says that we must check nitrate levels https://wikifarmer.com/how-to-feed-horses/ Does anyone know if it is necessary and how we can perform this test? Thank you. Alex

    I rescued my mare about 6 weeks ago and she seems to be doing great, although still a bit thin, in my opinion. When I bought her, she had been at the rescue/trainer for a month for training and observation. Her udders were full and swollen when she was rescued, so we believed her foal was...

    Hi everyone, I don't know much about this topic. I've tried doing research but can't seem to find concrete information. About my horse’s work: My horse is a 6YO QH mare who is primarily used for trails right now, the odd lesson too. In the future I am interested in getting involved with...

    Okay so yesterday I got my 5month old saddlebred filly, I was wondering if it's okay to feed her sweet feed. I don't think it would bother her because we feed it to my Hackney Quarter mare but she is a really easy keeper and gets fat very easily if we give her more than about a pound every other...

    I had to move my 2.5 year old mare, Areion to a new barn, better overall but taking a change in one aspect. I fed her an equal mix of Strategy Healthy Edge and Grainlands Rice Bran every evening at our last place, but now, not living on the same property as her for the moment, I am only able to...

    My horse is loosing weight so fast now winter is approaching, and was hoping someone might be able to suggest something I haven't already tried, or sugest something i may have missed health wise. She is a TB x ISH so typically a "ribby" bread, but she is dropping weight sooo fast at the...

    I have an all around horse so she does lots of different stuff but i don't ride her every day, maybe 4 times a week at most. She's fairy little too, only 14'3HH and in good shape. What would be a good feed or supplements to give her maybe once a week to give her extra vitamins etc. I was...
