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
Does anyone know if it is necessary and how we can perform this test?
So my boy has been on a fattening diet for the first 6 months I had him. He was very skinny.
He is a Clydie X, so he doesn't need much feed at all.
Now he's a big healthy pony, maybe a little bit too fat for my liking. I have changed his diet.
I've started working him a month...
I wanted to ask what hay you feed your horse and what opinion is the best hay for a horse?
I know it greatly depends on what you're doing. So if I were to do general riding, trail rides, and MAYBE barrels for fun (not showing) what would be the best hay for that?
Thank you and God...
My sister has a Morgan that appears to have cushing's disease. She's very skinny and has lost weight and muscle. However, she absolutely does not lack in energy. She also seems to be shedding her winter coat just fine. Her teeth have been floated about a year ago (The weight loss began...
I'm looking after a friends horse and I noticed that he was nibbling on poop, is this something I should be worrying about?
The only food he gets to eat in hay on a roll.
Can anyone give me any worldly advice about this? What should I tell his owner?
Now, I'm not new to horses, I have owned minis for over 7 years now but recently, I got my own riding pony. She is a14.1hh 7 year old Connemara X Arab. She's lovely but I'm not certain on how much food she should be having. She has a field full of grass however now that winter is coming (I'm in...
I found this website page full of horse treat recipes, but due to this person's name has caused controversy on horseforum.com I can't mention this person's name. If you would like the link to the website please message me and I will let you know the website address.
I do not own this website or...
In the summer, me and my friend thought it would be fun to ride on a trail to a drive through, and get something to eat. Has anyone ever brought their horses through a drive through before? I am pretty sure most places allow it, but I just wanna make sure.
My loan horse has laminitis and I am nervous when I give him food because I don't know if it is suitable for a pony with his condition. :?
Can people with experience with this condition please let me know what they can and can not have, or how much of something is suitable.
I greatly apologize if this has been created already, but I couldn't find anything else on this topic.
Anyway, I'm starting lessons again tomorrow and I want to make some home made treats for my future friends. I have two recipes, but they will prove difficult since I don't have oats. Does...

I rescued a 6 year old OTTB Gelding at the beginning of April. He was underweight, but not super severely. I brought him to his new home and he has put on a good amount of weight (his ribs and hips don't stick out anymore) and he has put on a nice amount of muscle. He is ALWAYS hungry though. To...
