- Here I talk about some grain, hay, Vitamins and other supplements. "MODERATION IS KEY" "LESS IS MORE". Too much of anything is not good for horses. I did not mention in the video about Mineral Block and Salt block available in the pasture. These are important so horses can supplement themselves as needed. I talk about rice bran, oats or rolled oats, flax seed, Red Cell and different hay. Too much grain, supplements, additives, calming aids and all the other stuff that people want you to buy is NOT good for horses. Small variety, little changes and a diet consisting of mainly grass hay is best for horses.

Yes I give it dry mixed with grain and the amount depends on how much the horse weighs. What every the directions say on fiber bottle? If it says one tablespoon for an adult, then for every 100 or 150 pounds your horse weighs, give that many tablespoons..


Keeping horses in show-ready condition requires time, effort and commitment. For competitive horses, matching their feed program to the type of exercise they are doing helps ensure their workouts are appropriately fueled.

In this video, Dr. Mary Beth Gordon explains how to support different types of exercise through nutrition, including:
- Aerobic activities like dressage, reining and endurance riding, which rely on fats and fibers.
- Anaerobic work, such as racing, cutting or 3-day eventing, which benefit more from soluble carbohydrates than fats.
- Supporting muscle recovery and maintaining weight, which are key for performance horses during the rigors of competition and training.

Here is talk about the horse's digestive system and why I feed horses even if they are in pasture. I talk about when horses have a choice about what to eat, they normally do NOT eat bad food. However, when a horse is locked in a stall and is unnaturally staved all day and only thrown a flake a hay once or twice a day, their hunger over rides the instinct to NOT eat bad food, so they eat mold or mice or dead birds in the hay and that is one reasons horses colic - lots of other reason like lack of clean water, not being able to graze and eat all day like they are designed to do, feeding only dry tightly pack hay so they eat clumps and do not chew slowly and let their system work the way it is designed to work.

FACT: A horse's stomach does NOT stretch like a human stomach, so when a horse eats FAST and fills the stomach very quickly, the stomach forces undigested food into the system before it is ready, another issue that contributes to colic. When a horse is starved and not feed all day, the

How to keep weight on a hard keeper senior horse. Senior horses' digestion becomes less efficient, and they may run out of teeth. These situations require changes in their feeding strategy. Since all horses require a forage-based feeding program, for senior horses, this may mean adding soaked hay cubes and beet pulp to the diet, to make up for the senior horse not being able to chew hay or grass well anymore. A high fat, high fiber senior grain with added vitamins and nutrients (I use Nutrena ProForce Senior), also fed soaked if teeth are bad, provides extra calories to help the hard keeper senior put on and keep on weight.
