Making horse feeds
For some horses, the mere mention of winter causes them to shed 10kg of bodyweight overnight. And, while we may all be wishing we shared a similar metabolism, it doesn’t soften the reality that keeping a healthy weight on your horse can be a challenge. Luckily, there’s a wealth of higher-calorie feed options that’ll promote optimum condition, muscle development and provide all-round great nutrition.
