When looking for horse tack or horse feed in Delaware, be aware of how much protein is in your feed. Feeding a horse higher levels of protein than they need means the horse simply breaks down the excess protein and excretes it in the urine. This is converted to ammonia, which is not desirable. Excess ammonia can lead to respiratory problems in stabled horses.
When purchasing horse tack in Delaware, do you know how to measure for proper halter fit? Here is an example of what you can do. Estimate where the noseband should sit, about 2/3 of the way down between the horse's nostrils and eyes. Take a cloth tape measure or a piece of string, measure around the horse's face. Take a second measurement, starting at the side of the horse's face where the noseband would lay. Measure from one side to the other, laying the tape along the horse's cheek, over the poll, and to the other side. Looking for some horse feed storage tips in Delaware? If not stored correctly you may lose valuable nutrients. Some thoughts to consider are- feed should be kept in a cool dry place; do not place new feed on top of old feed; store feed bags on pallets or off a concrete floor; ensure feed containers are clean and dry. Finally - keep the empty bag in case you need to refer to the manufacturer’s information.
