Looking for horse feed or horse tack in California? For feed, your horse should always be fed a minimum of 1 percent of its body weight in forage (on a dry matter basis). The ideal is 1.5 to 2 percent of its body weight. Feeding less roughage than this can lead to health issues such as colic and ulcers.
Want a good leather oil for your horse tack in California? Stick with non-animal and non-vegetable oils. Both of those products can turn rancid and possibly rot the stitching. Purchase oils made specially made for saddles and tack and check the ingredients before you buy. Leather is a natural product and you should try to avoid clogging the pores with waxes or damaging the natural fibers with alcohol, mineral spirits, or petro chemicals. How long is your horse feed safe for in California? Feed labels usually reflect a 30- 60 day expiration date. If owners maintain feed under ideal circumstances, it might remain safe for four to six months. Remember, once a bag is open, the clock starts ticking with quality of feed subject to degradation from exposure to air, humidity, and heat.
