Standlee: Hay, Have You Thought About Your Horse's Forage!
Dr. Stephen Duren and Dr. Tania Cubitt
Performance Horse Nutrition
As horse owners, trainers, and enthusiasts we all have spent many agonizing hours comparing feed tags on various bags of horse feed, trying to select the "best" one for our horse. We have also stared at supplements in the aisles of feed stores and in glossy advertisements in horsey magazines, wondering if this supplement could be the "magic" bullet that makes my horse better, healthier, faster, shinier, quieter, etc. However, the single highest volume ingredient in most horse diets is forage (hay/pasture). Have we put adequate thought into our horse's forage and the many benefits that high quality forage can have in a horse's diet? The following article will highlight the power of high quality forage in a horse's diet.
