Easy feeding: how to nurture a horse?
how to nurture a horse?
For performance, feeding is of primordial importance and therefore cannot be neglected. It must meet the nutritional requirements that we previously specified:
- Fibres, provided principally by forage (hay, grass, etc.).
- Carbohydrates, in the form of a mixture of slow releasing starch (barley, maize) associated with a greater or smaller amount of more easily digested starch (oats, flaked maize, etc.), depending on nutritional requirements.
- Fats and oils rich in Omega 3s.
- Proteins rich in lysine.
- Optimal coverage of vitamin and mineral requirements.
In order to know if a supplementation of forage meets correctly the nutritional requirements of horses, it is necessary to look at its content, that is, the different composing ingredients.
