I read so many threads about other peoples feeding regeme's that seem so complicated, and often, unnecessarily so. As a horse owner, do you have a reason for every thing that you put in your horses bucket? I do!**) I do not see the point in feeding something that has no purpose, or that I dont know why I am feeding it. * I feed hay and chaff for roughage. * I feed lupins for weight maintenance. * I feed Alka pellets for hind gut maintenance as my horse is a mild windsucker and I believe this product will neutralise the acids, and after 10 days I can see the improvements in my horses behaviour and poo condition. * I feed mineral suppliments/salt to balance shortfall in WA conditions. I sometimes hear of feeding regemes where by there are up to 20 different components in the bucket, and I wonder if the owner just adds all suggestions as they dont know what is best so add the lot. Do you fall into this catagory, or do you know why you feed what you feed?
