“So many horses have a variety of jobs, from daily ranch or feedlot work and then heading off to a jackpot, rodeo or show. It is essential that horse owners focus on a consistent feeding plan to get the most from these working horses while avoiding problems such as colic,” Anderson said.
In addition to some great basic information on figuring our if you are feeding your horse enough, this will help youth who are working to complete Levels 2 and 3 of the 4-H Horse Project Advancement program.”
