*ALWAYS SOAK FEED PRIOR TO FEEDING, 1 CUP FEED TO 1 1/4 CUPS WATER
IF YOUR HORSE HAS DAMAGED/WORN TEETH & CAN NO LONGER EAT HAY:
Wild Fed horse feed can be fed as the sole feed for your horse and no additional supplementation is necessary as it is a nutrient dense feed and provides your horse with all the nutrients it needs.
IF YOUR HORSE CAN STILL EAT HAY & YOU ARE USING THIS FEED TO ADD WEIGHT TO YOUR HORSE:
- When Wild Fed is the only feed to be given to your 1,000 lb horse, start with approx. 7-8 lbs of feed 2X/day.
- If your horse is not gaining enough weight with this amount then add more.
- Do not feed more than 10 lbs feed per meal.
- If your horse is gaining too much weight from this amount then reduce feed.
- Allow 3-4 hours between meals if feeding more than 4-5 lbs of feed at a time.
- The amount of feed your horse requires depends on his/her activity level and breed.
IF YOU ARE USING THIS FEED AS A TREAT:
- Provide your horse with good quality hay and/or pasture, free choice salt and clean water.
- Start with 2-4 lb Wild Fed feed per day and increase as needed.
- It could take 2-4 weeks before you notice results.
- Wild Fed is a nutrient dense feed but additional. supplementation may still be required if it is fed in smaller quantities.
IF YOUR HORSE IS ALREADY OVERWEIGHT:
- Give a cup of feed as a treat to your horse just cause you love them.
- Give 2-4 cups after a long ride to provide extra calories.
- If you are giving your horse other herbs or special. supplements use this feed as a base to mix in your herbs so the horse will eat them.
IF YOU TRAVEL WITH YOUR HORSE:
- This is a nutrient dense food and will be an added benefit to any horse’s diet but for an overweight horse, only give a small handful as a treat.
- This is a great alternative to hay bales as it is more compact.
- Bring Wild Fed feed with you on camping trips, long trailer rides or anyplace where hay is inconvenient.
- 1 bag of horse feed is approximately equivalent to 1 bale of hay.
