Has your Idaho horses activity workload been reduced? As part of good horse health care, consider switching to a feed that has lower calories but is more fortified. A ration balancer feed is a good option. If your horse is a hard keeper and requires higher calories, look at a feed with more fermentable fiber and fat for calories than starch. Research suggests that horses fed calories coming from fat may be calmer than those fed calories from starch, which is an important consideration for horses entering a period of reduced work.
