Whilst there are many books on feeding, this book provides detailed information on feeding specific categories of horses depending on their age and use. Part 1 describes what a horse needs in terms of nutrients and which feeds provide them. Part 2 gives in depth information on feeding the specific categories of horses and how feed affects behaviour and temperament. It also provides a list of health problems related to feeding. This book is a must for anyone from the individual horse owner to the career student who is interested in what should and should not go in a horse's feed bucket.
