Horse Nutrition and Feeding by Sarah Pilliner
Book DescriptionHorses that have been taken from their natural environment and enclosed in paddocks and stables, dramatically changes both life-style and feeding habits. Feeding time has been greatly reduced and cereal and protein concentrates introduced into the diet. As a result, horses are prone to many problems associated with feeding. This book clearly explains the science of nutrition and combines this with the art of feeding to encourage an understanding of how to feed horses to keep them healthy, and allow them to reach their full performance potential.This new edition - the first since 1992 - has been fully updated and extended to include new feeds and feeding practices and explains new advances in scientific knowledge. It provides clear guidelines for feeding competition horses, older horses and problem animals, and explains the role of feeds and feeding in maintaining the immune system and soundness. "Horse Nutrition and Feeding" is the recognised text for students studying horses at colleges, for BHS examinations, and for horse owners.
