How much do you know about feeding your horse properly? Find out with this quick true-false exercise:

  1. Your horse’s weight isn’t important when it comes to feeding.
  2. It’s a good idea to make sure your horse likes his feed before buying a large amount.
  3. Feed in equal amounts at the same time each day.
  4. Keep feed bins off the ground but much higher than the horse’s shoulders.
  5. Feed good hay like alfalfa because it is high in energy, protein and calcium.
