Are you buying horse tack or horse feed in Florida? To feed a growing horse, it generally needs between 12 and 18 percent crude protein in its diet for proper growth and development. Mature horses will most likely do fine on a lower protein percentage (8 to 12 percent).
Interested in the best fit when purchasing horse tack in Florida? A drafters tool called a “Flexi-Curve” will help you to trace your horse’s withers. Stretch the Flexi-Curve over your horse’s withers, start with the center of the curve across the withers and down both sides. Set the Flexi-Curve down on a large sheet of sturdy cardboard and trace the inside shape. Cut out the shape and take it to the tack store. The cutout should fit perfectly inside the saddle pommel like a puzzle piece. What are the proper conditions for grain horse feed storage in Florida? Humidity and temperature and exposure to air (of course this includes insects and rodents). High temperatures can speed natural degradation that include mold, bacteria and oxidation. The most important factor affecting stability of grain is humidity. A relative humidity in excess of 70% will cause deterioration even at low temperatures.
