Feeding your horse can often feel more complicated than what it should be. Walking into a feed store can be a daunting experience with so many bags and brightly coloured packages to choose from. As you wander through the aisles of pallets stacked two and three high with all manner of feeds and supplements it becomes increasingly difficult to make a decision on which will be best to feed your horse with. There are a few simple questions that you need to ask yourself in order to determine what you should be feeding your horse.
Forage, which includes hay and pasture, should be the foundation for all equine feeding programs. Feeding your horse should complement the forage that you have available for your horse. If you have ready access to pasture and good quality hay you will generally have to feed less concentrate to reach the horse's nutritional requirements (also depends on activity level). Low intake ration balancer products are a good choice under these conditions. Depending on the type of hay you have available, this will also influence your concentrate choice. Lucerne hay has higher protein and energy than some grass hays and makes a good addition to a feeding program that needs some additional calories, e.g. moderate to very heavy exercising horses, broodmares, and growing animals. Using these five criteria you should be better equipped in selecting the right feed for your horse. Remember always following the feeding guidelines outlined on each bag of feed. If these recommendations do not suit your horse then select a feed that you can follow the feeding recommendations to achieve the desired outcome. HYGAIN® offers an extensive range of excellent feed choices to select from.
