My horse is turned out all the time and has plenty of pasture. Do I need to feed supplements?
My horse gets a daily ration of sweet feed. Do I need to feed supplements?
My horse has really pitiful hooves. I cannot keep shoes on him. Would some kind of supplement help?
My horse is really a sweetheart. She just gets nervous when she’s stressed, which is anytime I ask her to DO anything. I wonder if there’s a supplement that will help comfort her? I hate to upset her.
My horse works really hard for me. I ride him sometimes twice a month for up to two hours at a time, so I like to make sure he’s getting all the nutrition he needs. I feed him the most expensive feed at my local feed store. I buy my hay from a guy who brings it to me from out West, so I know it’s the best. I give my horse every supplement I can find, because I want to be sure he’s getting everything he needs. He takes care of me, so I take care of him.
Hmmm. . . any of these sound familiar? If you’ve ever wondered IF you should be feeding a supplement, and then of course WHAT supplement, read the article below on MyHorseDaily. No big technical-nutritional-gobbledygook; just basic questions about your horse that determine if and what you may or may not need to feed your horse. It’s a good read.
