Strategy® Healthy Edge® horse feed supports the health and well-being of adult horses aged 2 years and older. Start with the amounts given for the weight and lifestyle of the horse. After observing the horse for a period of time, the amount fed may be increased or decreased by 10% to obtain the desired body condition and weight.
|- WEIGHT OF HORSE IN POUNDS -|
|Minimum Hay or Equivalent Pasture* (lbs/day)||7.00||9.50||12.00||14.50||17.00|
|Strategy® Healthy Edge® horse feed (lbs/day)**|
|Maintenance - Minimum Activity||2.00||2.50||3.25||3.75||4.50|
|Maintenance - Average Activity||2.75||3.50||4.25||5.00||5.75|
|Maintenance - Elevated Activity||3.25||4.25||5.25||6.25||7.25|
|Early Gestation (first 250 days)||2.75||3.75||4.50||5.50||6.25|
|Late Gestation (last 90 days)||4.25||5.50||6.75||8.00||9.25|
*This is the recommended minimum amount of hay to be fed. If feeding more hay, reduce the feeding rate of Strategy® Healthy Edge® horse feed by 1.0 lb for every
additional 2.0 lbs of hay fed. EXAMPLE: Using the chart above, if feeding 14 lbs instead of 12 lbs of hay to a 1,000 lb elevated activity level horse, reduce
Strategy® Healthy Edge® horse feed offered by 1.0 lb from 5.25 to 4.25 lbs per day (2.0 lbs of additional hay divided by 2.0 lbs = 1.0 lb less of
Strategy® Healthy Edge® horse feed).
**Do not feed less than 0.3 lbs per 100 lbs of body weight per day. EXAMPLE: A 1,000 lb horse has ten 100 lb increments (1,000 divided by 100 = 10).
So for this horse, do not feed less than 3 lbs per day (10 x 0.3 = 3.0 lbs per day). If your horse gains too much weight at that minimum feeding rate,
then you should replace Strategy® Healthy Edge® horse feed with Purina’s Nature’s Essentials® Enrich 12® or Enrich 32® Horse Supplement.
