In nature, horses graze 16-18 hours a day, but most people force them to adapt to human schedules and menus that cause discomfort, illness, and behavioral problems. The simple remedy: these good "food management" tactics. Understand horse physiology, and see why specialized concentrates don't work; how to make nutritionally sound choices of foods and supplements; how to balance a diet; and how much to give. Plus: facts on watering, equipment, preparation, and the "golden rules" of feeding.
