Friday Feeding Tips

Remember a healthy coat comes from the inside out!

The green grass has finally sprouted up again here after all this rain – and so has my horses energy levels lol! This just requires a change in the feeding regime and possibly their workload too. You can start to reduce the amount of roughage you are feeding as they now have their own out in the paddocks – woohoo! Also you will want to look at what feeds have the most amount of energy and reduce them if need be. The fresh green grass will be packed with sugars and providing that energy level for your horse. It’s about working out the right balance for your horse. Listen to them and watch their weight as they will tell you what you need to do with their diets. Don’t forget to keep a watchful eye on those that prone to founder and laminitis as they will be susceptible with all this green grass shooting up too. If you need help sorting out your horses diet don’t be afraid to contact me and I will gladly help you out
