EQUINE FEEDING

In order to have good health, it is very important to respect the instinct of each animal. This also applies to equine feeding. 

In the case of the horse, being a herbivore, it would not make any sense to give him, for example, meat since, in addition to being a waste of time and money, his body would not know how to digest it correctly. Therefore, we must give it grass, flowers, and fruits.

The diet of a horse is composed mainly of the following:

• Oats: it is rich in proteins, fats, and starch. It is the horse’s main source of energy

• Garlic powder: it is a potent natural antiparasitic that, having no side effects for the equine, can be given regularly.

• Barley: helps keep you in shape.

• Hay: essential for the horse to have the energy it needs.

• Fruits and roots: they provide vitamins and minerals.

• Flaxseed: it is rich in proteins and has stimulating properties. It has to be supplied cooked.

• Corn: it contributes a lot of energy, but it is poor in proteins and can be somewhat indigestible.

• Minerals: they are not mandatory, but sometimes it may be necessary to supply minerals as supplements.

• Wheat bran: 1kg daily is enough.
