I have been told to use slow feeders such as small meshed hay nets, but we are not the ones in charge of feeding the horses so, most of the time...

    Hi there! My mare is only going to get older and was wondering if anyone knew of alternatives to rosehip vital? I’ve heard from friends it’s good stuff but that price!! I’ve calculated it’s about $1200 a year give or take so wanting a much cheaper alternative 😂

    Nutrition Tips • Use white iodized salt instead of red mineral salt—there is very little difference between the two, just a lot of iron oxide in the red salt that gives it the red color. Horse diets are already loaded with plenty of iron, so it is a waste of money to buy any more iron. Also...

    I purchased a big 5 year TWH gelding about three months ago. He is a broad, well muscled fellow for sure, but he is also about 200 Pounds overweight in my opinion. He is turned out daily, from 8 AM to around 7 PM. However, his pasture is over grazed and there is not a lot of grass to be...
