    Information from Our Horse Experts

    Animal experts at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center share their knowledge about horses.

    Q
    How can I be sure my horse stays at a healthy weight?
    A
    You can restrict time spent grazing to a few hours per day or reduce the amount of hay offered to 1.5 to 2 percent of their body weight, which will certainly help control calorie intake. But sometimes these horses will still gain weight if fed 3.5 to 4 pounds of feed. In these cases, feeding only 1 to 2 pounds of a formulated feed designed to be fed at higher feeding rates can result in nutritional deficiencies in the diet. You don’t want to increase the amount of feed and end up with an obese horse, so what do you do? This is where forage balancers or ration balancers, such as Purina® Enrich PLUS™ ration balancing feed or Purina® Free Balance® 12:12 Vitamin & Mineral Supplement fit very nicely.
