Nutrition Tips for Senior Horses

Horses in the field.

One of the awesome things I get to do as an offshoot of my blog is write articles for other online {and sometimes print!} magazines. I recently wrote a short piece for Horse Channel on Nutrition Tips for Senior Horses.ย 

In the article, I give you practical tips to make sure your senior buddy is going into winter nutritionally prepared and then what you can do to make sure he stays healthy and happy throughout the rest of his life.ย Taking care of senior horses can sometimes be extra work and money, but I think they are always worth it.

Here is a few tips from the article, be sure to check out the full piece over at Horse Channel!

  2. If you decide your senior horse needs a feed supplement or mash, it is important to feed one specifically formulated for senior horses.
  3. I often recommend getting senior horses just slightly over their ideal weight before winter.
  4. As always, be sure to make any feed changes gradually.
