For horses

At the time of buying horses feed, the main attention should be paid to its quality. Combined fodder for horses of brand «Feed&Life» provides the needs of single-hoofed animals of different age, weight, growth, breed in protein, fiber, amino acids, minerals, vitamins and microelements.

Horse ration

To calculate the consumption of horses feed, you need to take into account the animal’s weight, 2,5% of which should be the daily ration’s weight.

At the same time, in the composition the following components must be present, which is necessary to provide sufficient energy for an adult horse weighing 500-600 kg:

  • hay - 10-15 kg;
  • concentrates - 4-6 kg;
  • juicy feed -2-3 kg;
  • bran - 1-2 kg.

Features of horse feeding

As a result of the constant stay of a horse in a pasture in spring and summer, most of the animal's needs for food are met by eating fresh grass, and in winter - by eating hay. Extra nutrition is required only for those horses, that working on heavy works.

Depending on the workload level, the feeding norms for horses are determined.

  • In order to maintain life: hay - 1,5%, mixed feed - 0,5%.
  • For light work: hay - 1,25%, mixed feed - 0,75%.
  • At the average work: hay - 1-1,25%, mixed feed - 1-1,25%.
  • At intensive work: hay - 1%, mixed feed - 1,25-1,5%.

The mode of horse feeding

The main rule during horses feeding is to give food often, but in small portions. Every day horses need to be fed at the same time, as they are very accustomed to a particular ration. If the horse is to undergo intensive training, the animal must be fed at least 1,5 hours before or after the horse has cooled. Otherwise, the digestion process may interrupt.
