Adding something to your horse tack or horse feed in New Mexico? For horse feed, changing commercial horse feed mixes by adding straight grain, such as oats will not save you money or dilute a mixture you think is ‘too rich’. Adding plain grains to a commercial mix changes the overall quantity and proportion of minerals that the horse gets, so his feed is no longer balanced.
Purchasing leather horse tack goods in New Mexico? Poor quality leathers will feel stiff and cold. The coloring on the edges may be different than the surface because the surface dye and/or tanning don’t go all the way through. Good quality saddle leather will be smooth, supple and with an imperfection or two. This is because the surface has not been sanded down and refinished. The leather will actually be stronger, and not discolor over time. Do you know the critical step in selecting a horse supplement in New Mexico? Before you purchase the supplement, compare the ingredients in the product you’ve selected to the nutritional makeup of the rest of your horse’s diet. That includes commercial feed and any other supplements. You want to avoid overloading your horse with any one nutrient, which could be dangerous.
