Equine WellBeing Rescue Inc.

So many times when I speak with people about feeding equine, especially when they are having trouble getting them to gain weight, they tell me they are feeding 'a scoop' of feed. Sometimes once a day, sometimes twice a day. It is hard to know how much is actually being fed because scoops come in different sizes (not to mention how many sizes coffee cans are too). Feed bags recommend measuring feed in pounds, not quarts (as many scoops are marked) and not cups.

The BEST way to feed an equine is to follow the amount recommened on the bag, weigh the scoop, then fill it heaping full...subtract the weight of the scoop...now you know how much feed/pellets/grains your scoop holds. From that you can determine how many scoops you need to feed to dispense the number of pounds of feed recommended. Usually they say to split it between two meals a day.

Anal as it sounds, we have done that with the various scoops we use daily. The green scoop which is labled by the mfg 3 quarts, if filled heaping- holds 3.5 lbs of hay pellets, feed or grain. I mark it on white duct tape on the side of the scoop. Our older horses who quid hay get 2 scoops in the morning and 2 scoops at night. With heaping scoops that is a total of 14 pounds a day. We have found between 1.5 - 2 scoops twice a day (that would be 12-14 pounds) is enough to sustain the weight of an elderly horse.

So for those thinking you can give one cup or one scoop a day and it be enough for an elderly horse who is hard to keep weight on, you are not feeding enough. Whether it's hay pellets (measure weight dry not soaked) or a complete feed you need to feed them enough to compensate for the nurtition they can't get from hay they quid and spit out...that quid hay has little to no nutritional value.

Last year we had 9 emaciation cases come in, one so bad she died within 24 hours all the rest survived and thrive because we are feeding them enough in POUNDS and the correct feed and/or roughage to sustain their weight.

Lesson for today - all scoops are not the same!!! Figure out how many pounds of feed your scoop holds and feed according to the instructions on the feed bag.

Happy Fourth of July from all the ponies at FKF 馃嚭馃嚫馃巼 Hope everyone has a great day and stays cool before fireworks 馃惔

Give your horse some loving today, they prefer that over treats馃惔

鈥淚t鈥檚 absolutely mind boggling if you think about it.

Your horse gets absolutely nothing out of being competitive for you. Not a darn thing. Of course horses are bred for specific jobs, or they鈥檙e bred to be athletic to a certain degree. However, horses don鈥檛 wake up thinking about chasing cans, or cows, or flying over jumps.

They have no idea how much money is added to the pot. They have no idea that this is a qualifier. They have no idea that this is the short go.

And DESPITE us... DESPITE our nerves, our flaws, our incorrect ques, our huge emotions, they get the job done to their very best ability. Even when we fail them by letting our emotions get in the way, they come back and they try again. For US. Whoa. Let that sink in. If only we could all be so understanding.

To think of an animal that is forgiving and flexible enough to put up with the repetition of practice, the intense nerves of the rider, the stress of hauling and still meet you at the gate for scratches is MIND. BLOWING.

If you haven鈥檛 done so lately. Thank your horse.

If you鈥檙e successful, thank the horses that put you there and made you. Thank the horses that gave everything they had for you simply because you ASKED them to.

If you鈥檙e still on the journey to success, thank the horses that made you fall in love with your sport and who have helped give you the confidence to want to learn more and be better.

We can never stop learning as horsemen and horsewomen, and by continuing our education every horse in our future will be better off.

Next time you head to the arena leave your ego at the door and thank your horse!鈥
