Pages / Length: 2
Publication Date: 10/10/2009

The 10 basic rules for the proper feeding of horses are very much like nutritional guidelines for human beings. Small meals and appropriate amounts of clean, fresh water are at the top of the similarity list. But because horse nutrition is specific, this concise publication explains the essentials of a healthy equine diet, beginning with forage and ending with information about dental care, vaccination, and deworming.
