Do you purchase horse tack or horse feed in Oklahoma? Do you need feed for a broodmare? In the first three months of lactation, mares can give up almost 3% of their body weight daily in milk production. For a 1,100-pound mare, that means about 24 pounds (about 3 gallons) of milk daily! This means a typical 1100 lb mare needs about 30 lbs of hay and 20 lbs of feed concentrate daily, at least double her forage when she isn’t feeding a foal.
Not sure what type of curb chain to add to your horse tack in Oklahoma? Curb straps come in harness leather, nylon, latigo or rope, single and double link chains. Chains should be stainless steel and leather can be light or dark oil with adjustable straps. Some models have hand engraved sterling silver plate buckles for showing. In Oklahoma, are you aware of how much horse feed your equine needs? One way is to get an estimate of your horse's weight. You can do this by using this formula that has proven to be quite accurate. Measure the- heart girth in (in inches) x heart girth (in inches) x body length (in inches) divided by 300 and add 50 = equine weight in pounds. You may also purchase a weight tape
