Feeding hay to Horses

Feed of hay to horses

When the soil is grassy and relatively dry, consider feeding hay on the ground to mimic a horse's natural grazing habits. Don't just drop a large round bale in the middle of a field of horses and expect them all to eat it. Has to be cured after pressing and before feeding. Before you open the hay rack, however, there are a few things you should be aware of when feeding hay.

Avoiding overfeed of your animal

The feeding of your horses with the right amount of wheat or wheat is not missile research, although it requires calculation to calculate its own mass. Over feeding a horseradish can cause colics, shell obstruction and even mortality if it is not cured. Horses can consume as much fodder or hay on a free fodder base, but their fodder quantity must match their respective fodder weights, as each fodder has a different one.

Your horse's pre-determined diet, feeding and feeding schedules will prevent you from over feeding him and maintain a normal diet for his age group. Weigh your horses with a strap to decide the amount of fodder they should be eating. Put the tip of a strap on your horse's crest, extend it around his side, on the other side and back to the tip of the strap.

Place the tip of a strap on his side against his shoulders and extend it to the back of his buttocks for its length. Multiplicate his circumference once, multiplicate this by length and cut it by 330 to get his pound mass. An example is a 72-pound long x 72 x 74 (74) / 330 = 1,162lbs.

On a sack of food, please see the feeding advice. Select the right category for your equine. Ripe horses, not working horses, should be given food at the grooming stage to keep their body size intact. We work with lightweight workhorses for one to three hour a days, average workhorses for three to five hour a days and intensive workhorses for more than five hour a days.

Select the state of pregnancy of a brood mare according to the feeding directions. These may not be farmed, pregnancy in the last three month or if she feeds a colt milk. Feeding your equine with the amount of feeding on the table where its grade and size overlap. Pour a feeding spoonful of equine fodder.

Put the shovel on a paper towel holder and weighe it. Using a permant markers, place the bucket with the top of a full bucket. Split the load in two and place the shovel half way with the load of the forage. Using a sticker, place a marking on the paddle to indicate the feed load on the quarters and three-quarters of the paddle surfaces.

Put the name of the chuck on the shovel. Split the amount of feeding into two parts to give your horses two identical feeds a days. The digestion of fodder is much better when horses get two smaller feeds a days than one large one. Take the right ratio for two daily feeds and give your horses one breakfast and one dinner, ideally every 12 h.
