New Year's means a new set of resolutions. Luckily, horses love to push themselves
(for a few bags of treats, of course). So this year, why not set some resolutions
for your horse?
Slimming down a few unneeded pounds is an incredibly worthy goal that'll help your
best friend not only live longer, but happier. Here's an easy tip to help you
this year: Research has shown haynets with smaller holes successfully slow
down forage intake by increasing the overall chewing time. This way, your horse
still has access to all the forage she needs without as much risk for overeating.
Another easy trick that can make a huge difference is to weigh your horse's feed
instead of measuring it in "bales." This is because bales can become compacted
based on various conditions such as weather and humidity, meaning that half
bale you feed your horse might be actually six-tenths of a bale.
Feeding your horse high-quality, premium forage is another great tip to keep her
happy and healthy. Click the button below to discover which forage is best
