Buying horse tack or horse feed in New Hampshire? For horse feed, here are some feed types you might want to know. They are: processed feeds-the ingredients are ground up, cooked and formed into pellets or extruded nuggets (which are puffed up like Rice Krispies); mixed grain, textured feed or sweet feed are grain mixtures with added molasses; complete feeds- all-in-one combinations of concentrates and forage, although they don't supply the same long-stemmed fiber as hay and grass.
Want a new cinch to add to your horse tack in New Hampshire? This is one way to determine your cinch size: Measure your horse from the center of the underside of his chest in the girth area. Bring the tape up to about 4" above and behind the elbow. Multiply this measurement by two and you will have a good idea of what size cinch your horse needs. Do you calculate your nutrient needs in your total horse feed in New Hampshire? Always be careful not to create an excess of other nutrients when increasing feed ingredient levels. Excesses of some nutrients can interact with other nutrients. For example, excess calcium can prevent complete utilization of phosphorus. Check National Research Council tables for calcium to phosphorus ratios; however, a good rule of thumb is a 2:1 ratio.
