Concise Guide to Nutrition in the Horse

by David W. Ramey, DVM and Steven E. Duren, PhD

Blending grains with vitamin and mineral supplements requires a feed mixer. Feed mixers allow feed manufacturers to do all sorts of fun things to grain products and give you even more choices for feeding your horse. Typically, two or more types of processed grains (such and corn and oats) are mixed together in these products. Mixing grain products can have some advantages. For example, individual grain have a certain protein and amino acid profile. If you mix oats with soybean meal, the amount and quality of the protein is increased over that provided in oats alone. Similarly, the mixture of corn and oats provides more energy on an equal weight basis that does feeding oats alone.

This is a good book for basic nutrition information and should be in every horseowner’s library.

Ah, horse nutrition! An area I'm always learning about. There seems to be so many different opinions....

Hi Liz,
I see you are reading my good friend Wendy Baker's book "The Healing Power of Horses."

I'm planning a blog book tour for my novel, Cowgirl Dreams, based on my grandmother who rode in MT rodeos during the 1920s, and I wondered if you would consider being a host for a day. This would be the last two weeks of May.
