Feeding is a subject which is of interest to horse-owners, but it can be confusing. the actual feed content of basic feedstuffs - oats, bran and hay - has often been badly affected by the build-up of artificial fertilizers and pesticides in the soil, thereby upsetting the natural balance of the ingredients and reducing their value as effective feedstuffs. Reputable branded feeds are usually well-balanced, but are often expensive. This book shows what feedstuffs are available, and how to make the best and most economic use of them, while paying attention to timing, presentation and palatability. The facts about feeding horses and ponies are here presented clearly, with a final problem section containing real-life case studies showing the dangers of incorrect feeding. the book also includes a bibliography for further reading.
