Already have your horse tack and use hay as horse feed in Utah? The different types include: Hay - cut pasture or meadow grasses or specially sown seed leys; Haylage - cut grass, baled with a higher water content than hay, and then wrapped; Straw - particularly useful as a partial replacement (up to a maximum of 30% of the daily fibre intake) when feeding easy-keepers or overweight horses and chopped dried grass - harvested earlier than hay and dried artificially which is often higher in protein and energy, making it a good option for poor-keepers or seniors.
Interested in adding a rope halter to your horse tack collection in Utah? A knotted rope halter will encourage the sensitivity and lightness in horses on the ground. Groundwork with your horse can be accomplished with a nylon or leather halter, yet the strong basics and subtle, specific exercises employed by natural horsemanship trainers are more easily accomplished in a good rope halter. Is your horse feed properly stored in Colorado? The best storage method is a waterproof, seal-able container. The container should be able to keep out pests such as mice and insects. Assure that your feed bin is in a cool and dry spot in your barn or tack room. Also remember to practice the first-in-first-out method where feed already in the bin is fed prior to the feed that was just purchased.
