Eating Lots of Hay Is Vital to Your Horse

The foundation of a horse’s diet is roughage, so careful attention should be paid to this key nutritional component. Generally, roughage accounts for 70 percent to 100 percent of a horse’s caloric, mineral and fiber intake. Good quality mixed (legume and grass) pasture under some form of weed reduction program is an excellent way to provide food for horses.
