Feeding Tips:
  • Use the feeding table as a guide for feeding SafeChoice® Original. Be sure to monitor your horse's body condition closely and adjust the feeding rate as necessary for the desired body condition and activity level.
  • Feed clean, good quality hay at the rate of 1.0 to 1.75 lb (kg) of hay per 100 lb (kg) of bodyweight per day or the pasture equivalent.
  • Divide the recommended feeding level into two or more equally spaced feedings per day.
  • Fresh, clean water should be available at all times, except to hot and tired horses. Always cool down your horse properly before providing free access to water.
  • Horses should be maintained at a body condition score of 5 or above. Broodmares should have a body condition score of 6 or above prior to foaling.
  • Salt should be available free choice at all times.
Tips for a Healthy Horse:
  • All dietary changes should be made gradually over a period of 7-14 days until recommended feeding rates are achieved.
  • Make certain that horses have adequate forage or pasture available.
  • Make certain that all horses are on regular parasite control, dental examination and vaccination programs.
  • Monitor body condition regularly and adjust feed intake as needed.
  • Store feed properly to prevent exposure to moisture or contamination by insects or other pests.
  • Never offer moldy hay or feed to horses.
