Muskogee Phoenix
As the temperatures decrease, a horse’s feed requirements increase. Allowing horses free choice to good quality forage (hay) is the surest way to ensure that they consume enough energy, and the process of digesting forage will actually produce heat. Horses will typically consume 2 to 2.5 percent of their body weight in forage each day, or 25 pounds per day for a 1,000 pound horse.
