LIFESTYLE Hay (Lbs. per day)* Strategy (Lbs. per day)**
Active Pleasure (lbs/day) 1.2% of body weight 1/3 to 1/2% of body weight
Performance (lbs/day) 1.2% of body weight  3/4 to 1-1/2% of body weight***
Pregnant Mares (1 to 7 months) 1.2% of body weight 1/3 to 1/2% of body weight

EXAMPLE: 1,000 lb active pleasure horse x 1/3% of Body Weight - 1,000 x .003 = 3 lbs of Strategy®  fed per day**. * This is the recommended minimum amount of hay to be fed. If feeding more hay, decrease amount of Strategy®  fed by 1 lb per 2 lbs of additional hay fed. If feeding a grass hay diet, feed 1/2 to 1 lb/horse/day MORE of the Strategy® .  After observing the horse for a period of time, the amount fed may be increased or decreased by 10% to obtain the desired body condition and weight. ** Do not feed less than 1/3% of Body Weight of Strategy®  to mature horses or less than 1% of Body Weight to growing horses. If they gain too much weight at this minimum feeding rate, then horses should be changed from Strategy®  to Nature's Essentials®  Enrich 32®  or Enrich 12® Horse Supplement. ***  Feed at the higher rate for harder working horses ****  Feed at the higher rate if rapid growth is desired  Important Considerations:
  • Do not feed free-choice
  • Feed at regular times (at least twice daily). When feeding rates exceed 1% of body weight, three daily feedings are preferred
  • Any feed changes should be made gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days
  • Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed one pound per day for each horse
  • Feed along with at least 1-1.5% of horse’s body weight of good quality hay or the equivalent in pasture to make a complete ration
  • Have plenty of fresh, clean water available at all times
  • Prevent the rapid eating by the horse of any feed stuffs
  • Store feed in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may cause illness or death
  • This product to be fed to the animal species as directed on the label
