For the past twenty-five years I have researched and experimented with feeds and feeding. Many of my observations and conclusions have been confirmed in the many articles written recently about horse nutrition in several leading magazines.
The end result is to produce a good basic grain at a reasonable cost. It is like building a house, start with a good foundation.
This is a reproduction of an article written by Bud Wrona as it was published for the local Redmond (WA) paper, in a column titled "Off the Hoof," which was created to help educate the community on, mainly, the proper care and feeding of horses. Some of the information might be outdated (unfortunately, we don't have the original publish dates) so please leave a comment if you happen to notice something that is.
