My Horse Forum
Ok I am trying to determine this you would think I would know I have had horses forever haha! But I just never really got rite down to the numbers of it, I was never really worried about cost, but now I am so I need to do numbers and budgeting etc.........
I am trying to figure out how much the average horse eats in hay a month and in grain a month.
Also how many flakes does your horse eat a day?? Grain??
I have worked with horses since Dinosaurs ruled the earth, and through the different breeds and types of activities followed have learned many different grooming tips, and seen some really bad ones.
Please pass along some of your special tips, including what type horses it worked on, for instance, Saddlebreds manes are very fine and silky, so not much water is put on them before a class to groom, while Morgans have beautiful full manes, and can be wetted more. So be specific in what breed.
What was the worst tip you ever say used. I would have to say the WD 40 tip, along with the Skin So Soft, both really mess things up.
Do you like natural tips, or spend money on fancy grooming items.
Have fun, and let's share the knowledge
I have a 14 month old border collie and I'm not happy about his weight.
I got him at 8 weeks as a rescue case - he was severely malnourished, to the point that the vet said he probably wouldn't have lasted another week where he was. You could see every rib and every knobble of his spine through his puppy fuzz.
He has put on a good deal of weight but is still a little too thin, and seems to have reached a point where he hasn't put on any more for some months now.
My vet has ruled out illness, he is wormed regularly, he eats an incredible amount of food (puppy complete biscuits [was advised that puppy food higher in calorific value so best for him] - full bowls down 24/7, tins in morning and evening). I have tried him on food specifically for the higher energy requirements of working breed dogs, but this didnt help either. Vet has said that he probably won't fill out until he has finished growing as he is an active breed, but she seems a little vague as to when this is likely...
