Many little girls dream of owning a horse. As a parent, there are a lot of concerns there. Not only for the safety of your daughter, but also how you are going to manage taking care of a two thousand pound animal. There are a lot of questions about expenses, and where to keep a horse, and taking care of a horse. But one thing that you never have to be concerned about is a horse’s diet. By contacting a Purina dealer, you can find the best feed for your specific horse.
If your daughter plans to show her horse, the horse may need higher quality, more substantial feed, and a lot more of it. If the horse is just there for pleasure riding, the horse will have a completely different diet.
Animal feed is often very expensive. So you have to keep in mind how much that will cost you ever month. Horses eat a lot, and how much grain they need depends very much on the weather. During the spring, when the grass is lush and green, horses will eat more grass and less feed. During the winter, if your daughter’s horse is still working a lot, the horse will require more grain, since the grass will not be enough to sustain the horse.
Livestock food can also be quite confusing. And the type of feed you buy should depend very much on your horse. Ask people at the store questions. Let them know how large your horse is, how much and what type of activities the horse will be doing, where the horse is kept, how old the horse is, and if he or she is healthy. The answers to these questions will ensure your horse gets fed properly.
