HORSE ISSUES TO BE CONSIDERED IN THE FEEDING

The feeding programs for horses should have the qualities to ensure the development of a robust skeletal and muscular system in order to provide a long and athletic lifestyle. Because horses live longer than other livestock and serve longer.

Horses should be fed individually, not as a group. This is due to the fact that each horse has different characteristics such as its weight, weight, rider and environmental conditions.

The feeds given to the horses should be in good quality and their rations should be balanced. Sudden ration changes should be avoided. In order not to cause pain in horses, small pieces of stone, sand and moldy, frozen feed should not be given. In addition, to avoid gnawing should not feed feed. The horses should be checked regularly and concentrated feeds should not be thinned. In order to prevent bad habits such as tossing, chewing without swallowing, fast feed consumption while eating concentrated concentrate at horses, stone, rock salt can be put in fist size.

The horses’ stomachs are very small compared to their size and the stomach capacity of the horses is 8.5% in the entire digestive tract. For this reason, feeding should be carried out at certain intervals and hours. When the time between two feeding is switched on or a few days of feed is not given, the horse can eat the food more quickly than it should, and this may cause tympanum or stomach rupture. Feeding should be done at least 3 times a day and this number should be increased to 6 at very hard working horses.

The feeding of the horses should be done before the water, followed by roughage and finally as a concentrated feed. In order to ensure that the concentrated feeds remain in the stomach for a longer period, a small amount of water is given after the roughage. This water facilitates and accelerates the rough oath to leave the stomach. Immediately after the concentrate feeds, water is given to the intestines in the stomach. This causes pain.

It is recommended that the concentrate given to the horses should be granular, pellet and crushed. Feeding the feeds in powder form (horses breathe deeply before concentrating the feed) can cause allergic reactions and other respiratory disorders by escaping the particles into the upper respiratory tract. In order to avoid this situation, the concentrated feed is moistened with mild water by hand. This soaking process should be done just before feeding. Pre-soaking of the concentrate may cause fermentation and increase the danger of wrapping.

The horses to exercise should complete the feed at least 1 hour before starting the exercise and the horses returned from the exercise should be fed at least 1 hour later.

The ratio of concentrate feed should be at least 50%, protein and mineral content of horse feeds which are in lactation and growth period should be kept high. On the other hand, there must be enough calcium and phosphorus in the feed. The ratio of coarse feed in the ration should be at least 30%, the growing and lactating horses should be preferred rather than legumes, mature and old horses should be preferred.

Clean and cool water should be placed in front of the horses. Sweaty, exercise-free horses and water should not be given immediately after feeding.

The biggest problem of horses of all ages and sex is lubrication and rest. Therefore horses should be adequately trained.
