Horse Miniature & Pony Concentrate Food Supplement
The Purina® Miniature Horsemeat and Pony is specially designed to cater for the needs of miniature and pony owners, who are usually metabolisically more effective than large animals, but still need the food necessary for growing, gestating, lactating, rearing and competing. Livestock fed on grass or meadow. Begin with the quantities indicated for the body mass and life style of the animal.
You can increase or decrease the amount of food by 10% to achieve the required physical status and the required load after a long observation of the animal. This is the suggested minimal amount of grass that should be used. And if you eat more grass, you' ll cut the amount of miniature horses and ponies you' re eating by 0.5 pounds for every extra poun.
Use the table above, if you give 7 lbs instead of 6 lbs of grass to a 500 lbs lightweight pony, decrease the amount of food for miniature horses and ponies by 0.5 lbs from 3.3 to 2.8 lbs per daily. Feeds not less than 0.3 lbs per 100 lbs of your total daily BMWW.
The 200-pounder miniature has two 100-pounder steps (200 split by 100 = 2). So, do not give this animal less than 0.6 pounds per diem (2 x 0.3 = 0.6 pounds per day). When your equine has gained too much body mass at this minimal dietary intake, you should substitute Enrich Plus® balanced food for miniature horses and ponies or WellSolve W/C® food for horses.
If foals and mares are nourished together, the quantity of foals on offer increases by 0.25 pounds per week (of the foal) per week for miniature foals and 0.5 pounds per week (of the foal) per week for stallions. Feed levels differ according to height, aging, temperament, condition, feed grade, weather and activities.
Feeds at frequent intervals - at least twice a day with three meals a day is preferable. Leave the ponies in a neutral stance in large-bottomed vats at standard heights or lower. Don't volunteer to do this. Avoid fast food being eaten by the animal. Reducing and/or retarding the supply of food to a dog that is warm, aroused or painful, has a temperature or diarrhoea.
You should always eat at least 1.0 to 1.2 pounds per 100 pounds of good grade goodness, pure or grazing grade straw. The change of food should take place step by step over a 7 to 10 week time. A change in diet should not be more than 1.0 pounds per diet for each individual animal.
Perform the chuck exchange step by step over a 7 to 10 day interval. The new fodder should be mixed with the old fodder by incrementally adding the amount of the new fodder while reducing the same amount of the old fodder. Avoid feeding mouldy or insect-infested food to pets, as this can lead to disease, poor nutrition or deaths.
