Tummy Talk

Horses are equipped with small stomachs. Yep! The average-sized 1,000-pound horse belly only has a capacity of 2 to 4 gallons, which limits the amount of feed a horse can digest at one time.

What horses put into their bodies matters β€” big time. So if you’re going into horse ownership, make sure these six nutrients are on their mane menu:

  • Water;
  • Carbohydrates;
  • Protein;
  • Vitamins;
  • Minerals; and
  • Forages
